Thanks to The Spoiler Fairy for sending us the following..

GAME OF THRONES: Based on the bestselling fantasy book series "A Song of Ice and Fire," by George R.R. Martin, the new series GAME OF THRONES launches its ten-episode season this month. The fantasy follows kings and queens, knights and renegades, liars and noblemen as they vie for power.

Meanwhile, there is a threat to the throne by the exiled teenage Princess Daenerys and her brother Viserys, whose family ruled the Kingdoms for many years before their bloody ouster. And there are rumors of strange things happening at the edge of the Kingdoms, north of the Wall, where Jon Snow, Ned's bastard son, goes to be part of the brotherhood of the Night's Watch, which is sworn to protect the Kingdoms.
