George R.R. Martin’s Werewolf Tale Makes Leap to TV
Cinemax is throwing itself to the wolves. The premium network, which has seen sister channel HBO reign on high with Game of Thrones, has ordered a pilot script based on a 1989 werewolf novella by the same author. The Skin Trade is about a private detective who finds herself embroiled in the fantasy world of mythical shape-shifters while investigating a series of brutal murders. But Martin says he won’t be sinking his teeth into the screen adaptation himself — he’ll be working on the next Thrones installment instead.
