... the other Black experience

Post-apocalyptic African fantasy series is in the works at HBO!

Brb. Screaming. Dying. With the help of "Game Of Thrones'" George RR Martin serving as executive producer, HBO is working on a series adaptation of Nnedi Okorafor’s post-apocalyptic Africa novel "Who Fears Death"!

Okorafor’s novel follows the African Nuru tribe, which has enslaved the Okeke people, and is now looking to eradicate the Okeke for once and for all. But when an Okeke woman is raped by a Nuru man, she gives birth to a daughter named Onyesonwu—a word that means "Who fears death?"—who develops magical powers that make her the target of a powerful force. Mysterious!

George RR Martin is best known as the cut-throat, sassy-pants, suspenders-wearing author of the "A Song Of Ice and Fire" series which serves as the basis for HBO’s 'Game Of Thrones'. Martin is also currently involved in the development of the ”Thrones“ spin-offs in the work.
