In the land of Westeros, seasons last for years, and the story opens with the threat of a ''long'' winter fast approaching. The Hand of the King, Jon Arryn, has unexpectedly died. King Robert Baratheon ventures north to Winterfell to name his old friend, Eddard Stark, his new Hand and second-in-command. Despite the concerns of his wife, Catelyn, Eddard reluctantly accepts his new title out of duty. Once installed as the Hand, Ned begins to uncover evidence that Jon Arryn was murdered--and that the forces behind his death may now be poised to strike at the King. The investigation ultimately becomes the catalyst for events that ultimately lead several families into a bloody feud for the control of Westeros.

The series was adapted for television by screenwriters David Benioff and Dan Weiss. In describing the series to newcomers, Benioff jokingly called it "''Series/TheSopranos'' [[XmeetsY meets]] [[Literature/TheLordOfTheRings Middle-earth]]". The producers and Martin made a tentative plan for seven to eight seasons, with each season's arc meant to line up with its corresponding book. However, this ultimately only worked for the first two seasons, as Book 3 (on its own the length of the ''entire Lord Of The Rings trilogy'') was eventually split into two seasons, and then Books 4 and 5 were combined into a single season. Martin himself wrote a episode in each of the show's first four seasons. [[note]] Adapting the novels is a particular challenge, in they are written in first-person, with the narrative changing characters with each chapter. [[/note]]

''Game of Thrones'' is an {{Creator/HBO}} series based on Creator/GeorgeRRMartin's [[{{Doorstopper}} epic]] fantasy series ''Literature/ASongOfIceAndFire''.

In the land of Westeros, the seasons last for years. The story opens with the threat of a ''long'' winter fast approaching. The Hand of the King, Jon Arryn, has unexpectedly died.
