Tentatively titled, The Long Night it cryptically promises a tale set "... thousands of years before the events of Game of Thrones, the series chronicles the world’s descent from the golden Age of Heroes into its darkest hour. And only one thing is for sure: From the horrifying secrets of Westeros’ history to the true origin of the white walkers, the mysteries of the East, to the Starks of legend... it’s not the story we think we know.”
"A Song of Ice and Fire" novelist, George R.R. Martin speculatively predicts “... we could possibly see two or even three make it to the pilot stage, with one series emerging on air in 2019 or 2020.” Although, that’s his best guess, he stresses that no one knows for sure.
Which of the remaining four writers (and their secretive pitches) would be your first choice to be next in line for another "Game of Thrones" prequel TV series or even a spin-off "Game of Thrones" feature film?

I opt for the Untitled Brian Helgeland/Game of Thrones Spin-Off (TV Movie), formerly tt7520426.

I opt for no other Game of Thrones prequels, but The Long Night.
Game of Thrones (2011) is great, but the series complexity pushes the limits of what my mind and body can handle. I imagine The Long Night will be similarly consuming and challenging. I love "Games of Thrones", but don't think I can manage more than one spin-off at a time and need the year-long hiatus between seasons to recover.
