HBO now filming Game of Thrones pilot in Northern Ireland

21 April 2009 - HBO to film TV pilot in Northern Ireland | Northern Ireland Executive

'A Game of Thrones', is scheduled to arrive in the third quarter of 2009 and is set to be an epic project. It is expected that the production will utilise various locations, as well as build a massive set in the Paint Hall.

Mr Robinson said: “This is the first time that a TV production of such vast size and scale has been filmed in Northern Ireland. The announcement comes following the visit by the deputy first Minister and I to Los Angeles in March. It will be a welcome boost to the production sector, helping develop the industry here and bringing employment and investment to Northern Ireland.

“HBO is a recognised worldwide brand, with their programmes broadcast in over 150 countries. Securing this project over a number of competitors is a major coup for Northern Ireland. HBO has an enviable reputation for offering very high quality, original programming, receiving critical acclaim for its productions including Sex and the City, Six Feet Under, Band of Brothers and of course The Sopranos.”

If you want to save your favorite TV show, watch it online

Want To Save Your Favorite TV Show?: Stop watching it on television. | The Big Money

This approach couldn't be more wrong-headed. Trying to convince more people to watch a struggling show on TV is entirely useless. The television industry is not a democracy; the only votes that count—scratch that, the only people allowed to vote at all—are the 12,000 to 37,000 households that have Nielsen boxes sitting above their TVs. Nielsen boxes are poll stations for the Nielsen company—the organization that reports all of the ratings for the television industry. If Nielsen doesn't know you exist, then neither do the TV networks. And if the TV networks don't know you exist, then tuning in to an endangered show is a waste of everyone's time. If a show is turned on and Nielsen isn't there to hear it, it most definitely does not make a sound.

This is why "save our show" campaigns would be wise to stop telling people to watch more TV. They should start telling people to watch more TV online.

Joss Whedon explains the idea behind Dollhouse's surprise 13th episode

Blog@Newsarama -- Joss Whedon skeptical about Dollhouse second season

“The decision had to do with the studio saying, ‘We need another episode for our package, and we can’t afford one. … ‘Can you do a clip show? Can we show the unaired pilot?’ I’m like, ‘No, you can’t. It wouldn’t make any sense. Besides, we cannibalized it for parts. Most of it’s in other episodes.’ And they were like, ‘Well, we really have to have 13 for foreign.’ And I said, ‘I’ll tell you what. I’ll shoot a post-apocalyptic thriller that’s all on our sets in six days with a cast of four other people, then we’ll pepper it with different bits from our regular cast, and we can do it all during the schedule. It’ll cost you half. I can do this.’ And I was so in love with the idea that I just came up with off the top of my head, and that’s what it turned into. It’s one of the best episodes we’ve ever made.”

The 13th episode, possibly set in a post-apocalyptic version of the Dollhouse will star internet goddess Felicia Day.
