Every Game Of Thrones Spin-Off Show In Development

Unlike some of the other “Game of Thrones” spin-off series, “10,000 Ships” is already known to have a head writer onboard in the form of Amanda Segel (whose credits as a writer and producer include the TV series “Without a Trace,” “Person of Interest,” and “Helstrom”). The show itself would wind the clock back 1,000 years prior to the franchise’s flagship series to focus on Princess Nymeria’s journey to Dorne.

As covered in George RR Martin’s supplementary writing about the histories of both the Westeros and Essos continents, the warrior Nymeria and the surviving members of the Rhoynar clan traveled from Essos to Dorne upon being defeated by the Valyrian Freehold during the Second Spice War, bringing 10,000 ships along with them. Nymeria then burnt those ships to ensure no one would leave their new home on her way to transforming Dorne into the powerful kingdom it’s presented as in “Game of Thrones.”

No doubt, many “Game of Thrones” fans recognize Nymeria as being the name that Arya Stark gives her direwolf on the series, in honor of the warrior queen. “10,000 Ships” would also be a great place to better develop the kingdom of Dorne and, if done well, serve as a correction to the way the realm was portrayed on that flagship series (which often resorted to colorism and other forms of racial and ethnic stereotyping).
