Stocks Fit for the Game of Thrones


Season three of the popular HBO series Game of Thrones debuted this past Sunday to a series record of 4.4 million viewers. The series is adapted from the George R.R. Martin book series titled A Song of Ice and Fire. Throughout the fantasy series, an intricate cast of characters is introduced, as we follow their ongoing battles for power, family, and honor.

While we don't know the net worth of the characters, we do have an idea of the cost to produce the show. The cost of the 10 episodes for season three -- which HBO executives won't confirm -- is reportedly in the neighborhood of $50 million to $60 million.
