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.

The night is darkest ere the dawn… and dawn has ever been the hope of Men!

After days of closed door talks between New Zealand Prime Minister John Key and Warner Bros. executives, the verdict is out today:

THE HOBBIT WILL BE MADE IN NEW ZEALAND.

Mr.John Key has only minutes ago announced at a press conference in the Beehive theaterette that Sir Peter Jackson’s Hobbit films will indeed be filmed in New Zealand.

Media outlets have yet to post links to any videos… but stay tuned to TORn for updates as more of the good news makes its way on to the interweb.

TODAY IS A PROUD DAY FOR KIWIS… AND A JOYOUS ONE FOR FANS AROUND THE WORLD.

CONGRATULATIONS TO ONE AND ALL.

For a sample of how news organizations around the world are reporting here are some links: CNN, TVNZ, Bloomberg and ABC to name just a few. Video of the announcement has been extremely slow to load. Peter Jackson’s team hasn’t released a statement yet but is expected to.

Scott Allie outlines ‘Dollhouse’ comic

Posted in Joss Whedon/Whedonverse with tags , , on October 24, 2010 by Geek Tv

Scott Allie has revealed some details of Dark Horse’s upcoming Dollhouse comics. The editor expanded on the recent announcement of more Joss Whedon-related titles from the publisher, including some based on his latest television series. Allie told MTV News that a 20-page mini-comic by married creative team Jed Whedon and Maurissa Tancharoen was included in the recently released Dollhouse season two boxset.

“You don’t see a lot of detail about how it happens in the show, so this mini-comic we did for the DVD is an original story by them that shows how the technology went public and turned most of the population into these zombies – or what they refer to as ‘butchers’. People’s brains just get shut off and they become hyper-violent, wreaking havoc on each other and everything around them.”

A one-shot released next April will expand on the mini-comic, and will be followed later in the year by a five-issue miniseries.

“All of the comics that we’re doing take place in the ‘Epitaph’ scenario, the post-apocalyptic environment from those episodes,” he said.
