George R.R. Martin intimated on his LiveJournal in May that one of HBO's prequel series was based on Fire & Blood, adding that one of the shows he was "not supposed to call THE LONG NIGHT will be shooting later this year".

HBO is nearing a pilot commitment for a prequel series based on the "Game of Thrones" companion book "Fire & Blood", sources have confirmed to Variety.

A representative for HBO said the network could not confirm a Thursday report from Deadline that the lengthy history of the fictional Targaryen family had inspired a new show. If the series ends up being green-lit, you'll likely see the formation of King's Landing and the Iron Throne, the birth of the Baratheon house, and plenty of incest and dragons.

Fire & Blood begins with Aegon the Conqueror, whose death triggered the events of the first Game of Thrones season, and focuses on the timeline all the way up to the civil war that almost destroyed the Targaryen family.

The pilot for this series will be set 300 years before the events that concluded the eighth season of GoT. Martin informally referred to the series as "The Long Night" in a blog post, alluding to the winter that lasted a generation almost 10,000 years ago, and caused widespread terror and starvation.
