This page is about the conceptual television series. For the deity, see: Seven

A concept for a television series of the World of Westeros based on the Seven Gods was considered. It would have followed the adventures of seven mortals as they came to be worshipped as gods.[1]


Following the conclusion of Game of Thrones: Season 6, George R.R. Martin flew to Los Angeles to pitch two concepts for successor shows to HBO executives: Dunk and Egg and The Dance of the Dragons. HBO passed on Dunk and Egg and did not want to rely solely on The Dance of the Dragons to propel the World of Westeros franchise. Thus, the network compiled approximately 15 prequel concepts that they considered for development, including one based on the Seven Gods. It, along with ten other concepts, did not make it past the conceptual stage and was never in development.[1]

Instead, HBO moved forward with the following five pitches: Carly Wray's (and later Bryan Cogman's) The Dance of the Dragons; Max Borenstein's Doom of Valyria pitch; Brian Helgeland's Nymeria pitch; Rand Ravich and Far Shariat's Aegon's Conquest pitch; and Jane Goldman's Bloodmoon, which was the only one to receive a pilot order.[1]

By 2024, Bloodmoon was shelved, The Dance of the Dragons developed into House of the Dragon under Ryan Condal,[1] Dunk and Egg was ordered by HBO as A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms, then titled A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms: The Hedge Knight, under Ira Parker,[2] and the Nymeria pitch, now Ten Thousand Ships under Eboni Booth, is still in development.[3]
