HBO’s “House of the Dragon” premiered with massive numbers on Sunday night, with 9.99 million viewers tuning in across HBO and HBO Max. This makes the “Game of Thrones” spinoff HBO’s most-watched series premiere in the network’s history.

This success didn’t come without a slight glitch: more than 3,700 were reported across HBO Max on Sunday night, taking place just before the show started airing at 9 pm.ET. “‘House of the Dragon’ is being successfully viewed by millions of HBO Max subscribers this evening. We’re aware of a small portion of users attempting to connect via Fire TV devices that are having issues and are in the process of resolving for those impacted users,” the HBO statement said.

That said, the premiere numbers are massive. The company said that the Sunday night numbers typically represents around 20% to 40% of the show’s total audience. “It was wonderful to see millions of ‘Game of Thrones’ fans return with us to Westeros last night,” said Casey Bloys, chief content officer for HBO and HBO Max.

“House of the Dragon” tells the story of the Targaryen civil war, which took place around 200 years before the events in “Game of Thrones.” It is based on Fire & Blood novel by George R.R. Martin which tells the story of the House of Targaryen. The 10-episode series will be released weekly.

“Buried: The 1982 Alpine Meadows Avalanche” Doc Sets Release Date

Buried The 1982 Alpine Meadows Avalanche Doc Sets Release DateGreenwich Entertainment has acquired of U.S. and Canadian distribution rights to “Buried: The 1982 Alpine Meadows Avalanche”. The documentary premiered at the Telluride’s Mountainfilm festival where it won the Audience Award, the first of several subsequent festival awards.

The film, which tells the gripping account of the deadliest avalanche in US ski resort history, opens in New York City, San Francisco, and Northern California theaters on September 23rd and expands to subsequent markets the following weeks during a 45 day exclusive theatrical window. TVOD/EST and DVD begin on November 8, 2022.

“Buried” was produced by Jared Drake and Steven Siig and executive produced by Academy Award-winning producer Evan Hayes (Free Solo) of Ace Content, Oscar winner Michael Sugar (Spotlight) and eight-time Emmy nominee David Hillman (The Tipping Point) of Sugar23, Mark Gogolewski and Shannon Houchins. Greenwich’s co-president Edward Arentz negotiated the acquisition with the filmmakers. Rocket Science is handling international sales.

“Essential viewing for skiers but all audiences – skiers and non-skiers alike – will find Buried a riveting account of a natural disaster, not only in the details of the avalanche itself and subsequent rescue efforts, but on how the disaster effected people in the years following and became a dividing line in time for the survivors and their community” says Greenwich’s Arentz.

Here’s the film’s official synopsis:
In the early 1980’s, the ski patrol at the Alpine Meadows ski resort were the undisputed gods of winter in the mountain hamlet of Lake Tahoe, California. Their esprit de corps was centered around keeping the skiing public safe, primarily through avalanche control and largely through triggering slides with explosives. For this group and the others caught up in these events, the innocent era of seemingly endless sun drenched powder and apres-ski parties would come to a sudden and harrowing close on March 31st, 1982.
