It seems likely HBO has begun screening the pilot for Game of Thrones. This is based off of a few unconfirmed reports, in addition to the fact that HBO president Michael Lombardo was quoted on Jan. 14 as saying they would see the pilot in two weeks.
Winter Is Coming: So the pilot is done. Well, done enough to show to HBO internally anyway. So now we wait for HBO’s final decision. Despite the fact that they are screening the pilot now, I’ve been told by those in the know that HBO is adamant about waiting until March for the official announcement. If we are lucky, we might get a short statement from HBO about their thoughts on the pilot. I wouldn’t count on it though. Still, it is exciting to think that there are some lucky individuals out there that have seen the pilot episode of Game of Thrones!
