We’d first heard word of the secretive featurette in December, but now we finally know more about the Game of Thrones special set to air in February. So — for now at least — the night is a little less dark and filled with at least one less terror of the unknown.
Thanks to those very well-informed minds over at Entertainment Weekly, we now know that the wee 30-minute look into everyone’s favorite epic HBO series is officially titled Game of Thrones: A Day in the Life, as was previously reported thanks to a fan’s astute DVR observations. But what is, perhaps, more exciting are the details as to what it’s all about. Namely, focusing on the how and why behind the mind-bogglingly large, expansive, and impressive production.
Shot like a half-hour documentary, the special will focus on a mere day of season 5 production. But oh so much can happen in a day. In fact, in a single day, Game of Thrones is often in production in multiple countries around the world. On this particular day, viewers will travel to Belfast, Northern Ireland; Dubrovnik, Croatia; Sevilla and Osuna, Spain to follow the inner workings of the series. Through the work of key crew members, we’ll all see “the epic sets, renowned cast and global scale of Thrones, as well as the more intimate and individual challenges of our subjects, giving the audience a new perspective on one of the most elaborate productions in television history.”
So there you have it! A Day in the Life debuts February 8th, at 7:30PM. GoT itself returns for its fifth season on April 12th.
