Fire Cannot Kill a Dragon

It was supposed to be impossible. That was the whole idea. George R.R. Martin wrote his A SONG OF FIRE AND ICE novels with the certainty that they were completely unfilmable. But HBO went ahead and made Game of Thrones anyway, taking an enormous gamble by launching the series in 2011. Everyone knows what happened next: The fantasy drama became the biggest globally televised entertainment phenomena of the 21st century, the rare show that was a ratings blockbuster, a pop culture obsession, an awards-season success, and a critical darling. Most shows are considered successful if they're just one of those things. Thrones has won more primetime Emmys than any drama in history. The most recent season averaged 44 million viewers across all platforms in the U.S. alone. But what they don't know is the story of how this impossible show was made and everything that happened behind the scenes. Now, James Hibberd is going to tell that story, and he's the perfect person to do so. FIRE CANNOT KILL A DRAGON will trace the show's story from its conception to the finale (and beyond) with unprecedented access to the creators, actors, and production team members who made the show such a critical and commercial hit. It will feature new reporting as well as older material seen through a fresh lens, and include exclusive never-before seen photos and never-before-told stories.
