The show is co-created by author of the popular book series, George RR Martin, and will take place a thousand years before Cersei wreak's havoc on Westeros and the mother of dragon’s crosses seas in an attempt to claim her throne.
The pilot has been written by Kick-Ass screenwriter Jane Goldman, and Watts will be playing “a charismatic socialite hiding a dark secret”, which sounds sinister AF.
Goldman, who is known for her black comedy, hinted that the series will be funny as well as feature its trademark gore, telling Digital Spy, “Those are things I love, and things I like to do, it would be remiss of me not to put them in.”
Unfortunately, due to the order of the series, we’ll have to wait a while to see Watts’ scheme in Westeros as the show will have to air at least a year after the final season of Game of Thrones runs in 2019.
No news yet as to when the eight and final season of Game of Thrones will air next year, but you can be sure we’re keeping our eyes peeled and ears open.
