TVLine Items: Game of Thrones' First Real New Promo, ABC's Celebrity Divers Revealed & More!

Game of Thrones Season 3 SpoilersPromos for Game of Thrones‘ third season thus far have consisted of teasers with no fresh footage — until now.

A just-released two-minute preview of the fantastical HBO drama gives a behind-the-scenes look at all things Westeros (and beyond!), including loads of interviews and glimpses at the year ahead.

“This is the rise and fall season,” exec producer David Benioff shares. “There are so many characters who come into the season with power of some kind who lose everything, and other characters who enter with almost nothing and achieve great power.”

And brace yourselves, Thrones fans, because “this is a season of tremendous reversals of fortune,” which will have you both “pleasantly surprised and horrified — in equal measure,” promises EP D.B. Weiss.

Watch the sneak peek below, and catch the Season 3 premiere March 31 at 9/8c.

  • what a shocker? ABC copying another show? Didn’t Fox just do a reality competition special about celebrity diving? Very original ABC?!

      • Shades of the Wife Swap/Supernanny/The Contender debacle when Fox rushed Trading Spouses/Nanny 911/The Next Great Champ onto the air first….

  • I do not want to live in a world where people actually watch “celebrity” diving and because the idea is soooo stupid I’m sure I never will.

  • Wasn’t there already a show on Fox I believe about Celebrity Diving. It was on about a few weeks ago. Um why would ABC do the exact same thing when the other one BOMBED? Who runs these networks? Seriously they are the most idiotic morons ever. Do they even watch TV. They need to hire someone who LOVES TV and actually enjoys the shows they put on. TV is starting to be like the music industry dead dead dead.

  • Wow, looks like the eye candy quotient on the Celebrity Diving show is ridiculously low. And shouldn’t that play a big part in choosing participants?

  • Sorry to burst your bubble, but there have been multiple teasers for GoT that featured footage from the third season just like the one mentioned in the article. Sure this one featured more, but all the behind the scenes featurettes have been packed with shots and behind the scenes shots of new characters, places and uncut reel footage.
