Sarah Adina Smith, known for her work on Lessons In Chemistry and Hanna, will direct three of the six episodes in the first season. The other three episodes will be directed by Owen Harris, who also serves as an executive producer alongside Martin, Ira Parker, Ryan Condal, Vince Gerardis, and Sarah Bradshaw.

A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms is set about 100 years before the events of Game of Thrones and 100 years after the events of House of the Dragon. The series will follow the journey of Ser Duncan the Tall, a chivalrous knight, and his young squire Egg, who later becomes King Aegon V Targaryen. Their adventures will take them to a knightly competition, where they encounter various members of the Targaryen dynasty and other key figures in Westeros, including the Laughing Storm, Ser Lyonel Baratheon, and a puppeteer named Tanselle.

The series is adapted from Martin's novella The Hedge Knight and promises to deliver the same mix of political intrigue, dangerous exploits, and powerful foes that have captivated audiences of the original series.
