Originally published on Dark Horizons by Garth Franklin

“Game of Thrones” author George R.R. Martin has signed a massive overall deal to develop more programming for both HBO and the HBO Max streaming service.

The deal, which spans five years and is said to be worth mid-eight figures, follows in the wake of no less than five projects set within Martin’s “A Song of Ice and Fire” fantasy world in development at the network with one – “House of the Dragon” – greenlit to series and about to begin production.

Martin is also developing for HBO the series “Who Fears Death,” based on Nnedi Okorafor’s award-winning 2011 post-apocalyptic novel, and “Roadmarks” based on Roger Zelazny’s 1979 fantasy novel. He will executive produce both.

Outside of HBO, he’s developing “Wild Cards” as a series at Peacock, and the feature “Lost Lands” for Paul W.S. Anderson and Milla Jovovich.
