The announcement was made at an event for HBO max by HBO Executive, Casey Bloys. GOT director Miguel Sapochnik will be part of the House of Dragons.

Miguel Sapochnik will partner with Condal as showrunner and will direct the pilot and additional episodes. Condal will be writing the series."
The prequel is based on Fire and Blood which is written by George R R Martin. Fire and Blood deals with the history of House Targaryen. It tells about the rise of the Targaryen Dynasty throughout Westeros. The saga begins with Aegon the Conqueror and in between come many Kings and Queens who conspire and connive to get a stronghold on the throne. Finally, it is taken over by Aegon III. The prequel reveals events that take place 300 years before the Game of Thrones. The 10-episode series deals with the civil wars.
The announcement was made just after it was decided a previous prequel starring Naomi Watts was canceled after long talks. The prequel was written by Jane Goldman and somehow did not work out. It was heard that Goldman had been contacting the cast and crew to inform that the series met with a dead-end. It is also rumored that the prequel which was being directed by S J Clarkson had run into problems as it was not up to the mark and some edits had to be made.
