stephenkingStephen King got the idea to write an episode of  “Under the Dome,” a TV adaptation of his 2009 sci-fi novel, from George R.R. Martin.

King wrote the first episode of the second season of the show, which debuts later this month. “I knew that George R.R. Martin had written a few episodes of ‘Game of Thrones,’ and I was very jealous,” the horror author told The Los Angeles Times.

Here is more from the interview:

“It gave me a chance to set the arc in motion for the season,” he said between mouthfuls of pizza (served, much to his amusement, with a side of ranch dressing), “and it gave me a little more input into what was going to happen.”
