Based on the book ‘Fire and Blood’ by George RR Martin , ‘House of the Dragon’ takes place 300 years before the events of the books and focuses on the reign of Targaryen. The series recently added ‘The Visitor’ star Paddy Considine as King Viserys Targaryen, a kind and decent man who discovers that doesn’t necessarily mean he will be a great king after the lords of Westeros have chosen him to succeed the Old King, Jaehaerys Targaryen. .
The creator of Thrones co-created House of the Dragon with Ryan Condal , who wrote the pilot script. Condal will also act as co-showrunner alongside original series veteran Miguel Sapochnik , who directed several of the HBO series’ episodes and will direct others of ‘House of the Dragon’, including the pilot.
