Syfy announces ‘Caprica’ cancellation

Posted in Battlestar galactica with tags , , , , on October 28, 2010 by Geek Tv

Syfy has announced that Caprica has been cancelled. The network opted to pull the Battlestar Galactica prequel off the air immediately and declared that the remaining five episodes of the show’s solitary season will air in the first quarter of 2011. Syfy executive vice president of original programming Mark Stern revealed that the decision to axe the programme was based on disappointing ratings.

In a statement, Stern said: “We appreciate all the support that fans have shown for Caprica and are very proud of the producers, cast, writers and the rest of the amazing team that has been committed to this fine series. Unfortunately, despite its obvious quality, Caprica has not been able to build the audience necessary to justify a second season.”

BSG executive teases ‘Blood & Chrome’

Posted in Battlestar galactica with tags , , on October 28, 2010 by Geek Tv

Producer David Eick has revealed more details of the forthcoming Battlestar Galactica prequel series Blood & Chrome. It was previously announced that the new show would follow a young William Adama as he is assigned to the newly-built spaceship Galactica.

Eick told the Los Angeles Times: “[Adama is] on the precipice of experiencing his first taste of combat. The era… is the threatening, treacherous period known as the First Cylon War, which fans of Battlestar Galactica may remember took place over 40 years before the events of [that show].” He added that the series would introduce several new characters, including the “compelling and unusual” Beka Kelly.

“[She is] an enigmatic, seemingly impenetrable software genius who gives Adama a run for his money in more ways than one,” explained Eick.

The two-hour pilot for Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome is expected to go into production early next year.

SyFy orders New Galactica prequel show

Posted in Battlestar galactica with tags , , on October 24, 2010 by Geek Tv

American channel Syfy has reportedly ordered a new pilot based on the popular science fiction franchise Battlestar Galactica. The Hollywood Reporter claims that the channel have ordered a two-hour pilot as the basis for a new series, which will follow original protagonist William Adama. The report claims the new series, Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome, will take place during the early years of the Cylon war when a young Ensign Adama is assigned to the newly-built spaceship Galactica.

“We jumped at the chance to revisit the William Adama character and explore this exciting chapter in the Battlestar Galactica narrative which falls between the events of the original series and the prequel Caprica,” Syfy head of programming Mark Stern said of the new series.

Earlier this year Syfy launched another prequel series in the form of Caprica, which is set almost 60 years before the events of Battlestar Galactica and follows the creation of the show’s main antagonists, the robot Cylon race.

Battlestar Galactica: The Exhibition World Premiere Weekend: Oct. 22-24, 2010 at Seattle�s EMP|SFM
New traveling exhibition to feature three full-size spaceships, costumes and props from the original and reimagined series

SEATTLE—Experience Music Project|Science Fiction Museum (EMP|SFM) is proud to announce its latest exhibition, Battlestar Galactica: The Exhibition. Organized by EMP|SFM and in partnership with Universal Cable Productions and Syfy, Battlestar Galactica features three stunning, full-size prop spaceships, iconic costumes, new exhibition films, music and other props from the original and reimagined series. Battlestar Galactica opens to the public Oct. 23, 2010 and runs through March 4, 2012 at EMP|SFM in Seattle.

“The museum is honored to be organizing the first exhibition devoted to both series,” said Brooks Peck, Curator of Battlestar Galactica: The Exhibition. “Battlestar Galactica is one of those rare science fiction shows that appeals to a wide range of people because it combines high adventure with very personal drama. It explores what it means to be human, and has a lot of fun doing so.”

Opening weekend (Oct. 22-24, 2010) will include museum member and public events with some of Battlestar Galactica’s most popularpersonalities.

“Over its four season run on Syfy, Battlestar Galactica became an iconic series that not only entertained, but fulfilled the promise of all great science fiction. It provoked us into examining our world and ourselves through its politically-charged, socially-relevant, religious and technological themes,” said Mark Stern, Executive Vice President, Original Programming, Syfy, and Co-head, Original Content, Universal Cable Productions. “It is an honor for us to partner with EMP|SFM in this one-of-a-kind opportunity to experience BSG in an up-close and personal way.”

The exhibition will be presented in the Milestones Gallery on EMP’s third level. Battlestar Galactica will become a traveling exhibition in 2012 after its premiere at EMP|SFM.

About Battlestar Galactica: The Exhibition:

Battlestar Galactica is an epic drama of interstellar proportions. The last vestiges of humanity flee a cybernetic Cylon horde, traversing the stars in search of the fabled promised land of Earth. The setting of Battlestar Galactica may be rife with spaceships and inhuman adversaries, but ultimately the show is a complex narrative about how we attempt to retain our humanity under desperate circumstances. The series acts as a science-fictional lens through which to examine difficult questions that we may encounter in our own lives.

Edward James Olmos working on Battlestar Galactica sequel

Edward James Olmos working on Battlestar Galactica sequel

What do you mean you haven’t watched the whole thing yet? What takes you so long? *cough* says me who  just finished watching a month ago 😐

Anyway, if you’ve watched it you know it’s one of -if not THE- best sci-fi shows in the history of scifi. And I’m on the side that believes it is THE best, that’s why the following news make my heart skip happily ^^ Thanks to Amy for sharing it first!

According to Edward James Olmos, we WILL find out what happened to William Adama after the events of the Battlestar Galactica series finale, because he’s at work on a sequel we’ll all get to see “pretty soon.”

While discussing his film Selena during Hispanic Heritage Month, the conversation (as you might expect) eventually came around to BSG, and Olmos said:

“I’m going to go there. I’m going to go there in a graphic novel. Pretty soon I hope. I don’t know. It just depends on whether people can get behind it and understand it for what it is. I think people will. …”I want to know what he’s doing right now, don’t you? I kind of was left with him sitting about to build his cabin, so God almighty I’d like to know what’s happening to him right now. In many moments throughout the day, I’ll think, ‘I wonder what he’s doing? What the heck is he up to? What the heck are those people up to?’ Here they were 200,000 years ago on this earth. They came from the experience that they came from. All I can tell you is: aren’t you guys curious as to what happened to them?”

Even though Olmos promised his graphic novel take on BSG “pretty soon,” it may take a while yet, because the actor is still in the process of finding the artist to collaborate with, but whenever he pulls this project off, we’re there. How about you?
