From imdb. You can see the HBO teaser here.

One of 2011’s most anticipated new shows is HBO’s television adaptation of George R.R. Martin’s fantasy series, Game of Thrones, featuring Sean Bean as Eddard Stark, Nikolaj Coster-Waldau as Jamie Lannister, and Peter Dinklage as Tyrion Lannister, Lena Headey as Cersei Lannister, and Jason Momoa as Khal Drogo.

From Empire Online:

Game of Thrones, the upcoming fantasy series, is based on George RR Martin's twisted novels.

The story centres on two houses, both alike in dignity: the Starks - led by Sean Bean's Eddard - and the royal Bartheons - led by Mark Addy's Robert. Complicating matters are Queen Cersei Lannister (Lena Headey) and her family, particularly brothers Tyrion (Peter Dinklage, pictured) and Jaime (Nikolaj Coster-Waldau).

Then there's exiled, deposed heir to the throne Daenerys Targaryen (Emilia Clarke), who's about to be married off to barbarian leader Khal Drogo (Jason Momoa).
