Yes, but will it have more fabulous babes?
Los Angeles – As Battlestar Galactica begins the countdown to its series finale, there is new life in the franchise!
Sci Fi Channel announced today that it’s picking up Caprica, the spinoff series set 50 years before the Cylon attack that sent the ragtag fleet on its mission to Earth. The series is a family drama about the Adamas (as in Admiral Bill and Major Lee Adama) and the Graystones, during the era when computer engineers were brainstorming the first Cylon technology.
The series stars Esai Morales as Bill Adama’s father Joseph; Eric Stoltz and Paula Malcolmson as wealthy capitalists Daniel and Amanda Graystone, parents to Zoe Graystone (Alessandra Torresani); and Polly Walker as the imperious headmistress at Zoe Graystone’s school.
But how many episodes of life in the pre-apocalypse Twelve Colonies will we get? And when does the show premiere?
Fans should look for 20 hours of Caprica, based on Sci Fi’s current order, including the already produced but not yet aired two-hour movie. Production on the other 18 hours of season one is set to begin this summer in scenic Vancouver, with an expected premiere date sometime in 2010. (H/T – )
Well, I’m sold! Of course, they could have put a two-second series on and I would have tuned in for it. I’m cool like that.
