Dominion Voting Systems Press Release: Today legal representatives for Dominion Voting Systems filed a defamation complaint in the Superior Court of Delaware in New Castle against the Fox News Network.

Comments

"The news comes on the heels of a surge of Game of Thrones prequels being put into development. All told, the network has five projects based on Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire fantasy world in the development stage and one (House of the Dragon) that's been greenlit to series.

The four-time Emmy winner is also developing for HBO the series Who Fears Death (an adaptation of Nnedi Okorafor's award-winning 2011 postapocalyptic novel) and Roadmarks (an adaptation of Roger Zelazny's 1979 fantasy novel), both of which he will executive produce."

'
He's doing a series based on a story one of my all-time favorite fantasy-sci-fi writers, Roger Zelazny, author of The Chronicles of Amber, published between 1970 and 1991, among many other great books he wrote." - from the thread link

"The Game of Thrones creator is exec producing a TV adaptation of Roadmarks from sci-fi novelist Roger Zelazny, which is development at the WarnerMedia cable network.

Martin is friends with Zelazny, having met him at a writer's workshop in Bloomington, Indiana in the mid 70s before becoming closer when he moved to Santa Fe. In a memoriam for Zelazny, who passed away in 1995, Martin said he was a kind and generous man who lent him money when he was broke.

George R.R. Martin said, "My career in television started in 1985 when I adapted Roger Zelazny's Last Defender of Camelot for The Twilight Zone.
Roger was a friend, a mentor, and one of the greatest science fiction writers who ever lived. It was an honor to be able to bring his work to television. That is why I am so thrilled to be a part of adapting Roger's novel Roadmarks for HBO. We have a great book, a great screenwriter in Kalinda Vasquez, and the makings of a wonderful, original show. I look forward to a long and thrilling journey."
