What is A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms about?

The official logline offers:

A century before the events of “Game of Thrones,” two unlikely heroes wandered Westeros… a young, naïve but courageous knight, Ser Duncan the Tall, and his diminutive squire, Egg. Set in an age when the Targaryen line still holds the Iron Throne, and the memory of the last dragon has not yet passed from living memory, great destinies, powerful foes, and dangerous exploits all await these improbable and incomparable friends.

Sarah Adina Smith (“Lessons In Chemistry,” “Hanna,” “Buster’s Mal Heart”) has joined to direct three of the six episodes. Previously announced director and executive producer Owen Harris will also direct three episodes.

A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms is written and executive produced by George R.R. Martin and Ira Parker. Executive produced by Ryan Condal, Vince Gerardis, Owen Harris, and Sarah Bradshaw. 

House of the Dragon Season 2 also premiered on Sunday.
