George R. R. Martin provides a sneak peek at A Song of Ice and Fire Calendar for 2022

George R. R. Martin is a name generally associated with the highly popular TV series, Game of Thrones, as its creator. However, he is expanding his working area. His skills now include helping to bring other famous novels to life as well. The writer is now an executive producer for AMC’s upcoming TV show ‘Dark Winds‘. He’s tagging along with Graham Roland and Robert Redford.

AMC network has decided to build a TV series adaptation of Tony Hilerman’s ‘The Dark Wind’ novels for AMC+ and AMC. The show will be led by Westworld alum Zahn McClarnon. (The show Westworld also shares a connection with Game of Thrones!)

George R. R. Martin to co-produce AMC’s upcoming TV series ‘Dark Winds'

The official description of the show narrates: “Based on the iconic Leaphorn & Chee book series by Tony Hillerman, Dark Winds is a psychological thriller that follows two Navajo police officers in the 1970s Southwest. As their search for clues in a grisly double murder case forces them to challenge their own spiritual beliefs and come to terms with the trauma of their pasts.” The first season of the show is expected to have 6 episodes.

Here’s what Martin has to say about the series, “Tony Hillerman was one of the greats, as every mystery reader knows. Down here in the Southwest, Joe Leaphorn and Jim Chee are as iconic as Sherlock Holmes, Hercule Poirot, Philip Marlowe, and Travis McGee. When my friends Robert Redford and Chris Eyre asked me to help bring Leaphorn and Chee back to television, I could not agree fast enough. We have great source material in Tony’s novel ‘Listening Woman,’ a great pilot script from Graham Rowland, a great director in Chris… and what a pair of leads, with Zahn McClarnon as Leaphorn and Kiowa Gordon as Chee! Our plan is to shoot in New Mexico, in and around Santa Fe and on the Navajo reservation, and we are bringing in as many Navajo and other Native Americans as possible, as writers, directors, cast, and crew, to capture all the magic and mystery and wonder of the Land of Enchantment. Thanks to AMC for making it possible. Tony Hillerman wrote a lot of amazing books, and it is our dream to adapt as many of them as we can.”

Dark Winds is scheduled to arrive in 2022 on AMC+ and AMC. The shooting will take place on Navajo Nation land.
