A few weeks ago, you heard it here first at WatchersOnTheWall that HBO would be airing a special featurette entitled Game of Thrones: A Day in the Life on February 8th at 7:30PM. Now, thanks to Entertainment Weekly, we have more details about the season 5 behind-the-scenes documentary.
According to EW, the featurette is a half-hour long, and “covers one day of season 5 production on three different Thrones sets in three different countries – Belfast, Northern Ireland; Dubrovnik, Croatia; Sevilla and Osuna, Spain.”
EW reports that various crew members will be followed and that we’ll 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.”
Sue the Fury: It’s great to know the featurette is actually that long, and not a misleading number on the schedule. I’m hoping we’ll get some cast moments in there, since the EW report doesn’t mention anything about that. The creation of the show is always fascinating to see but of course, I’d love to see some actual footage from the show, or at least parts of scenes.
Update: HBO has released a promo video for the special- we’ve embedded it above. The video does include new footage of some locations, including the Osuna bullring and we spy some Snake stunt action.
