Thrones Creator Plans HBO’s “Cosmos”

George R.R. Martin, the author of the “A Song of Ice and Fire” novel series that became HBO’s mega-successful “Game of Thrones” TV series, is re-teaming with the premium cable channel for another series.

Martin is reportedly developing a new series with HBO called “Captain Cosmos” which deals with a young science fiction writer living in 1949 at the dawn of the age of TV. The writer spends his time penning stories no one else would dare to write.

The project is currently in early stages of development at the network with Michael Cassutt, a writer and co-executive producer on SyFy’s “Z Nation,” penning the pilot.

The proposed series is not expected to be a major commitment for Martin who has recently been cutting back on other commitments to pen the sixth book in the ‘Song’ series – “The Winds of Winter”.

“Game of Thrones” will premiere its fifth season on April 12th.
