Winter is Coming: HBO Unveils New Teaser Trailer for Game of Thrones

HBO last evening unveiled a new teaser trailer for its upcoming fantasy series Game of Thrones, based on the novels of George R.R. Martin.

The series, which is expected to debut in 2011, stars Sean Bean, Lena Headey, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau, Peter Dinklage, Mark Addy, and Kit Harington, among many, many others. Production is slated to begin next month on the series, with reshoots expected on the original pilot after two roles were recast.

The Hollywood Reporter, meanwhile, is reporting that the series now may not debut until spring or early summer of 2011. However, as HBO has not commented on a launch date (other than just "2011"), I'd advise that fans sit tight until the pay cabler officially announces a firm start date for the David Benioff and D.B. Weiss-executive produced series.

[UPDATE: The Hollywood Reporter is now back-pedaling a bit, stating that "it's unclear if the new start date on the series will impact its premiere plans." In other words: I was right to advise caution.]

The teaser trailer for Game of Thrones, which aired prior to the Season Three premiere of True Blood, can be viewed in full below.




Game of Thrones will premiere in 2011 on HBO.

Katie Lee Packs Her Knives: Breaking News from Bravo's "Top Chef"

The android has left the building. Or the test kitchen, anyway. Top Chef 's robotic host Katie Lee Joel, the veritable "Uptown Girl" herself (pictured at left), will NOT be sticking around for a second course of Bravo's hit culinary competition. According to a well-placed insider, Joel will "not be returning" to the show. No reason for her departure was cited. Unfortunately, the perfect replacement for Joel, Top Chef judge and professional chef Tom Colicchio, will not be taking over as the reality series' host (damn!). Instead, the show's producers are currently scouring to find a replacement for Joel. Top Chef 's second season was announced by Bravo last month, but no return date has been set for the series' ten-episode sophomore season. Stay tuned as this story develops. UPDATE (6/27): Bravo has now confirmed the above story .

BuzzFeed: "The Good Wife Is The Best Show On Television Right Now"

The CBS legal drama, now in its sixth season, continually shakes up its narrative foundations and proves itself fearless in the process. Spoilers ahead, if you’re not up to date on the show. At BuzzFeed, you can read my latest feature, " The Good Wife Is The Best Show On Television Right Now," in which I praise CBS' The Good Wife and, well, hail it as the best show currently on television. (Yes, you read that right.) There is no need to be delicate here: If you’re not watching The Good Wife, you are missing out on the best show on television. I won’t qualify that statement in the least — I’m not talking about the best show currently airing on broadcast television or outside of cable or on premium or however you want to sandbox this remarkable show. No, the legal drama is the best thing currently airing on any channel on television. That The Good Wife is this perfect in its sixth season is reason to truly celebrate. Few shows embrace complexity and risk-taking in t

BuzzFeed: Meet The TV Successor To "Serial"

HBO's stranger-than-fiction true crime documentary The Jinx   — about real estate heir Robert Durst — brings the chills and thrills missing since Serial   wrapped up its first season. Serial   obsessives: HBO's latest documentary series is exactly what you've been waiting for.   The Jinx: The Life and Deaths of Robert Durst , like Sarah Koenig's beloved podcast, sifts through old documents, finds new leads from fresh interviews, and seeks to determine just what happened on a fateful day in which the most foul murder was committed. And, also like  Serial  before it,  The Jinx may also hold no ultimate answer to innocence or guilt. But that seems almost beside the point; such investigations often remain murky and unclear, and guilt is not so easy a thing to be judged. Instead, this upcoming six-part tantalizing murder mystery, from director Andrew Jarecki ( Capturing the Friedmans ), is a gripping true crime story that unfolds with all of the speed of a page-turner; it
