Setting it in the Second Age certainly leaves a lot more room for the kind of "palace intrigue" plots that made GoT successful.

On the one hand I can't say I'm particularly optimistic given what the Hobbit films and Shadow of Mordor seem to say for the priorities of those holding the IP and money strings.
On the other, it's an interesting period and good writers could do amazing things there.

Certainly it's a more promising scenario than the "young Aragorn" pitch. We'll see. :)
Persona: Aerlinneth, Dúnedain of Amon Lendel c. TA 3010.
