HBO had another notable programming announcement on Thursday besides the return of Game of Thrones, and we didn't even have to sit through a block of melting ice to get it.

Game Change director Jay Roach with will step in to helm the yet-untitled series which will be based on source material from Mark Halperin and John Heilemann.

Ask the team lined up to head the as-yet-unnamed project: Jay Roach, who most recently executive-produced HBO's Lyndon B. Johnson biopic "All the Way", is signed on to direct, and Tom Hanks and Gary Goetzman are the executive producers, the network announced. Tom Hanks and Gary Goetzmann will produce through their Playtone shingle. Need proof? HBO Films has greenlit a miniseries about the 2016 presidential election, an event you are already very familiar with, because, unless you were born sometime in the last four months, you literally just lived through it. It snagged three Golden Globes and five Primetime Emmy Awards, among others.

No writer has been attached yet for the Trump miniseries. HBO clearly feels Trump's controversial run, marked by outrageous moves and scandals, needs more expansive treatment in a miniseries format vs. a movie like Game Change. The duo's book about Trump's stunning 2016 upset over Hillary Clinton is set to be published by Penguin Press.

Halperin and Heileman have built a considerable industry based on their reporting about recent elections, including Showtime's "The Circus: Inside the Greatest Political Show on Earth".

The HBO miniseries will be based on an upcoming book by Mark Halperin and John Heilemann, the two journalists behind the 2010 New York Times bestseller, "Game Change".
