A live-action television series of the World of Westeros based on Aegon's Conquest was pitched to HBO by Rand Ravich and Far Shariat.

In summer 2017, HBO announced that five separate prequel pitches were under consideration, none of which were ultimately greenlit. One was about Aegon's Conquest by Rand Ravich and Far Shariat. Their script portrayed Aegon the Conqueror as "a drunken lout," and was one of the first pitches rejected by HBO.[1]

On February 9, 2024, The Hollywood Reporter revealed that Mattson Tomlin was attached to a new Aegon's Conquest project.[2]
