A full-page ad, located in the Monday, February 25th edition of the New York Times, seems custom-designed to light up fantasy fans’ pleasure centers. The clever Game of Thrones ad features what looks unmistakably like the shadow of one of Khaleesi’s dragons, cast across a series of dummy articles, with headlines like “Lost Film Returns.”
“What Martin had going for him when writing A Clash of Kings was a lifelong passion for medieval history and a decade or so spent living and breathing these characters. You can’t fake that.

China Doll centers on a successful California construction subcontractor, his Asian American wife who is a university professor, and a robot as they straddle both sides of the Pacific with extended families on two continents. Despite the presence of a robot, “this is not a sci-fi show,” Scheffer said. “It is ambitious but is set in the present day.”
If your show features a robot, it is science fiction. If your show is set in the present day, that does not mean it isn’t science fiction. Try again to sell me your show.
“The Wall. On the Northern border of the seven kingdoms stands The Wall. It’s 700 feet tall and 300 miles long, made up of ice and rock. It’s manned by the “brotherhood of the Night’s Watch,” a collection of lawless men. If you’re sent to The Wall, you will spend your life starring out into a big cold nothingness keeping watch for days, months or years.”
