Game of Thrones is TV show based on popular fantasy books A Song of Ice and Fire written by George R. R. Martin. Story evolves around multiple characters from seven families who are battling for the throne of Westeros.

I won't go in story details as most of fantasy show fans are probably already familiar with it. If not one of the best fantasy series, it is certainly most promoted from this genre.
