HBO are not concerned that their hit show Game of Thrones will outpace the books on which the show is based.

There has been much speculation that Game of Thrones author George R.R. Martin would not have the books finished in time to keep up with the TV show but HBO president of programming Michael Lombardo is not concerned.

Speaking at the TCA Press Tour Lombardo commented, "We're not off on our own. George is an integral part of the creative team [and] every move is being choreographed very closely with him.

"We'll have to figure it out with George. We're in conversations with him."

It was previously noted that showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss have spoken with Martin about where he sees the various characters ending up in the end so they can plot the drama in the right direction.
