Game of Thrones writer George R.R. Martin working on a new HBO sci-fi series Roadmarks

George R.R. Martin is one of the most celebrated writers of the present generation. His work A Song of Ice and Fire gave birth to Game of Thrones, the biggest TV show of the decade. At the moment, the author already has his hands full, working on Winds of Winter and prequels like House of The Dragon. However, this does not stop him from working on more amazing projects. Martin is currently developing a new sci-fi series on HBO, the Roadmarks.

The author wrote on his blog Not a Blog about the series under development. He said, “The story broke a few days ago, and is now all over the internet: I am developing a new series for HBO, a science fiction show based on ROADMARKS, a novel by the late great Roger Zelazny. And what do you know — the story is actually true. Which is more than can be said about most of the stories about me that I stumble over these days, boys and girls. (I have said it before, and will say it again, but sometimes it seems no one listens. Do not believe everything you read).”

He continued, “Anyway… YES! We had not intended to announce anything yet, to be sure. Development is a long and uncertain process. Thousands of shows are pitched, hundreds of pilots are written, dozens of pilots are filmed, but only a very few of them ever get greenlit to series. There is a reason that Hollywood insiders call it “development hell.” And what’s the point of announcing projects that might never make it to air? That’s why HBO — like most other networks and streamers — prefers to keep these things quiet.”

Kit Harington and Rose Leslie win battle against conservation officials

Kit Harington and Rose Leslie win battle against conservation officials

Building a house is always on the list of dreams one wants to accomplish during one’s lifetime. However, it would be awful if your dream slides off into the water. In the case of Game of Thrones star Kit Harington, it might actually happen. Like his character Jon Snow, he’s fighting hard to defend his wall. Well, this time, it’s his garden he is trying to protect. Kit Harington and Rose Leslie, who starred in the hit fantasy series, win permission to rebuild the moat wall despite Historic England concerns.

Kit Harington, 34, shares the property with his wife and co-star Rose Leslie. His character Jon Snow had to defend a crumbling 700ft-high fortification known as The Wall on Game of Thrones. Now he is facing structural problems closer to home. He is concerned that the moat at his £1.75 million Suffolk farmhouse is in danger of collapsing.

The 34-year-old has applied for permission to carry out repairs to stop the garden from sliding into the water. Plans submitted to the local council say part of the existing 6ft-high moat wall has fallen down and other parts are suffering a ‘significant lean’.

The collapse, which affects two sides of the 15th Century building and has led to part of the earth bank being exposed. It is also putting structural pressure on a small footbridge across the moat.

The couple wants to build a new wall with a concrete core and faced by heritage-style bricks ‘to ensure the long-term stability and safeguard against future problems’. But Historic England fears the plan to replace the retaining wall could lead to the loss of ancient remains and artefacts.

Game of Thrones’ Diana Rigg left out of BAFTA memorial montage

Game of Thrones’ Diana Rigg left out from BAFTA memorial montage

When we stare at a starry night sky, we see the light of the stars that died out thousands of years ago. The earth lost one of its brightest stars, Diana Rigg, not too long ago. Her warm light still shines upon our memories serving as an inspiration. Diana Rigg was left out of BAFTA’s in memoriam tribute on April 11 alongside other stars who died in the last year. The Game Of Thrones and James Bond (1969) actress was omitted along with fellow Bond girl Honor Blackman (1964).

People on social media were baffled by the omissions. One wrote: “Was a disgrace that @BAFTA missed Diana Rigg [and] Honor Blackman from in memoriam. 2 iconic actresses from the 60s and starred in 2 of the most highly thought of Bond films and many others. These were MOVIE stars not only television stars!”

The British Academy of Film and Television Arts explained its decision after the feedback, citing a restricted broadcast duration. “With limited time available for obituaries within the broadcast, it isn’t possible to honour all those who have sadly passed away.

BAFTA’s committee considered Dame Diana Rigg to be better known for her work in TV. So she will be included in BAFTA’s TV Awards broadcast this year. Dame Diana Rigg also features in BAFTA’s online records at www.bafta.org/heritage/in-memory-of.

Game of Thrones’ Nikolaj Coster-Waldau to return to TV with a new show

Game of Thrones ended nearly two years ago. The show is celebrating its 10th anniversary this year on 17th April. HBO is organising a month long celebratory events on account of The Iron anniversary. Yesterday the television network released videos of the show’s stars and crew looking back at the show’s 10 years. Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Jaime Lannister) hasn’t played a role on TV since Game of Thrones ended. He will make a return to the small screen with the series adaptation of the 2020 Christina Clancy novel The Second Home.

No network or writer is currently attached to the series, but Coster-Waldau will also be executive producing.

The novel follows the Gordon and Shaw families following a fateful summer on Cape Cod. The story explores how a devastating secret can derail young love and tear apart families.

Years later, the siblings from one of the families come together to decide the fate of the family beach house. They try to mend relationships by hashing out exactly what happened all those years ago on Cape Cod.

Coster-Waldau will be reaching out to fans to help raise funds for 10 charities close to their hearts during the Iron anniversary along with other Thrones stars. These are The Trevor Project, Women for Women International, World Central Kitchen, Conservation International, International Rescue Committee, UNICEF, FilmAid International, National Urban League, SameYou and Royal Mencap Society.
