Game Of Thrones only has two short seasons left before it wraps up its series run, and thus will end one of the great pieces of television of the current generation of shows. It'll be a sad day when it happens, but at least we can all rest easy knowing that it went out on its own terms. But wipe those tears away, for fans of the Game Of Thrones author and series executive producer may be happy to learn that the writer isn't done with showbiz just yet.
While Martin has largely made his name as a novelist, one aspect of his career that can't be overlooked is his work as editor of various anthologies. Among these anthologies are Old Venus, Rogues Dangerous Women, Warriors, and of course, Wild Cards, which is the anthology we'll be talking about today.
Thanks to a reveal via George R.R. Martin's own LiveJournal page, »

You may be familiar with George R.R. Martin's A Song of Ice and Fire series which led to HBO's Game of Thrones but for even longer he’s been involved with a science fiction and superhero fantasy anthology called Wild Cards. And he's just announced it's coming to a television near you. Back in 2011 Wild Cards was optioned for a movie by Syfy Films and Universal Pictures. That didn't quite pan out but Martin himself announced the latest news on his LiveJournal which still has Universal involved: Universal Cable Productions (Ucp) has acquired the rights to adapt our long-running Wild Cards series of anthologies and mosaic novels for television. Development will begin immediately on what we hope will be the first of several interlocking series. Melinda M. Snodgrass, my assistant editor and right-hand man on Wild Cards since its inception, the creator of Dr. Tachyon, Double Helix, and Franny Black, »

“Game of Thrones” author George R.R. Martin could soon have another sprawling fantasy world on television. Variety has confirmed that Universal Cable Productions has acquired the rights to develop Martin’s anthology series “Wild Cards,” after the author announced the deal on his personal blog. Due to Martin’s exclusive development agreement with HBO, the author will not be working on the project, with Martin’s assistant editor Melinda Snodgrass (whose television credits include “Star Trek: The Next Generation,” “The Outer Limits,” and “Reasonable Doubts”) and Gregory Noveck executive producing instead.
According to Martin, “the shared world of the Wild Cards diverged from our own on September 15, 1946 when an alien virus was released in the skies over Manhattan, and spread across an unsuspecting Earth. Of those infected, 90% died horribly, drawing the black queen, 9% were twisted and deformed into jokers, while a lucky 1% became blessed with extraordinary and unpredictable powers and became aces.

Last time on NCIS, we watched Gibbs bond with a wounded fellow sniper and also saw Gibbs back in action as a sniper himself. It was also the show's 300th episode and featured a performance from the real MusiCorps Band, which was very cool.
This episode of NCIS, titled "Reasonable Doubts," sees the team investigating a rather confusing murder when the victim's wife and mistress each accuse the other of the dastardly deed. We also continue the countdown to Tony Dinozzo's exit. Sigh. Well, at least we can look forward to Tony doing some bonding with Anthony Dinizzo, Sr. (Robert Wagner) during this episode.
