Game of Thrones
Jerome Flynn, the actor who plays Tyrion's manservant Bronn in HBO's "Game of Thrones," says that the show's upcoming fourth season will depart further from the books than ever before.

Speaking at a panel during last weekend's New York Comic-Con, Flynn said fans will be "quite surprised" by how different the new season is from the books. He also spoke about a fight scene he's involved in that's part of a battle being done exclusively for the series. [Source: Screen Rant]

Wolf Hall
PBS is teaming with BBC2 for the period drama miniseries "Wolf Hall" based on Hilary Mantel's novels. PBS replaces HBO who was originally lined up as the co-production partner.

The story follows the rise of Thomas Cromwell (Mark Rylance) in the Tudor court. Peter Kosminsky ("The Promise") will direct the mini from a script by Peter Straughan ("Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy"). [Source: Broadcast Now]

Set in a small town, the story begins when three teenage girls star in a pornographic film that tears their families apart. That's followed by a disappearance, a murder and secrets being unearthed. [Source: Deadline]
