George R.R. Martin s best-selling book series "A Song of Ice and Fire" is brought to the screen as HBO sinks its considerable storytelling teeth
into the medieval fantasy epic. It s the depiction of two powerful families
-- kings and queens, knights and renegades, liars and honest men
-- playing a deadly game for control of the Seven Kingdoms of Westeros,and to sit atop the Iron Throne. Martin is credited as a co-executive producer
and one of the writers for the series, which was filmed in Northern Ireland and Malta.
