To say that fans of HBO’s Game Of Thrones are eagerly anticipating the premiere of the series’ fifth season is a bit of an understatement. Fortunately, the network has recognized how desperate the show’s audience is for anything related to the series, and is offering up a behind-the-scenes documentary on the making of the fifth season that will air in February 2015.
Game of Thrones: A Day in the Life premieres February 8 at 7:30pm ET (on HBO, of course), taking fans through a single day of production on the wildly successful adaptation of George R.R. Martin’s fantasy saga. The half-hour program offers a peek at the various international sets where production on the show happens as filming gets underway in Ireland, Croatia, and Spain.
In its announcement of the documentary (via EW), HBO promises that it will highlight “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.”
The network also provided a brief video teaser for the special.
The fifth season of Game Of Thrones kicks off April 12, but fans can get a look at two episodes from the previous season presented in IMAX theaters later this month. The IMAX screenings will also feature a new trailer for the fifth season.
