The producers of Game of Thrones are teaming up with Germany’s Beta Film for another show, The Perished Land, a 12-part fantasy series conceived to return over multiple seasons.

The series is set in the fictional land of Talanton, report, a world remarkable for its natural beauty which makes it a character in its own right. The fantasy world – which Beta likens to Lord Of The Rings meets Avatar – is a tribal land that will seem “raw, sensuous” and “at times shocking”. It is also a world of vengeful and benign spirits, rituals, superstitions and the supernatural.

Doelger and Stamp are writing the story that will hold up a mirror to human history with Talanton experiencing its own World Wars, Cold War, collision of tyrannies, ideologies, crises of resources and religions. It will unfold as a Hero’s Quest into a multi-stranded narrative.

Sounds like it could be another winner for fans go GoT.
