Jeff Buhler will pen the script and executive produce the Universal Cable Productions project alongside Gene Klein, David Bartis and Doug Liman of Hypnotic; Alison Rosenzweig and Michael Gaeta of Gaeta Rosenzweig Films; and Lloyd Ivan Miller and Alice P. Neuhauser of Lloyd Ivan Miller Productions. Robert Jaffe, who penned the 1987 feature film based on Martin's novel, is set as a producer.
Martin himself is not involved, given his overall deal with HBO, where he's currently co-writing two of the four potential "Game of Thrones" follow-ups that are in the works (via The Hollywood Reporter).
