Posted on 23 November 2011 by Christian

Syfy has ordered a pilot script from Fringe writer Andrew Kreisberg for a small screen adaptation of Booster Gold. We have all the details on the creative talent behind the show as well as details on its premise here.

The Hollywood Reporter has exclusively revealed SyFy’s plans for a small screen adaptation of Booster Gold. The network has reportedly ordered a pilot script for what will be a one-hour drama from Fringe writer Andrew Kreisberg. Greg Berlanti’s production company will oversee the project in association with Warner Horizon Television. It will credit both Berlanti (Green Lantern, No Ordinary Family) and Kreisberg as executive producers. DC Comics are expected to receive similar credit.

They also reveal a few details about the premise of the planned series.

The story will center on Booster Gold, a washed-up athlete from the future who travels back to the present in hopes of becoming the greatest super hero of all time.

First Concept Art For Battlestar Galactica: Blood And Chrome

Posted on 21 December 2010 by Christian

Blastr have got their hands on some cool looking concept art for Syfy’s upcoming two-hour pilot movie for Battlestar Galactica: Blood and Chrome…

Blood And Chrome will focus on a young William Adama during the first Cylon War. Here is a short synopsis..

“Ensign William Adama, barely in his 20′s and a recent Academy graduate, finds himself assigned to the newest battlestar in the Colonial fleet … the Galactica. The talented but hot-headed risk-taker soon finds himself leading a dangerous top secret mission that, if successful, will turn the tide of the decade long war in favor of the desperate fleet.”

Executive producer David Eick calls Blood And Chrome “authentic, relentless depiction of combat and the agony and ecstasy of human-Cylon war, which was the hallmark of Battlestar Galactica’s early seasons.”. Not too much else is known yet though. No word on whether any other characters from the other shows will feature, but I imagine they will have to have Colonel Tighe in there somewhere!

Stargate Universe Cancelled

Posted on 17 December 2010 by Kevin Minke

I’m so sad to report that Stargate Universe has finally been cancelled, with the remaining 10 episodes to air in Spring. The show was slow to pick up fans and I for one had a hard time with the first season but have loved this second one. I will be sorry to see it go. The show in my opinon was a much more serious and interesting base plot then the previous spin-off Stargate Atlantis, but the execution of character development was slow and but progressive. I really stopped watching Atlantis when the repetitiveness of the scripts wore on me but SGU was growing on me as I watched and I do hope that more fans of the Stargate franchise give the last few episodes of this season a look before it’s gone from the air waves.

Even with the slow up take I still can not stand what the studio did to the cast. Apparently, the cast wasn’t told ahead of time, and some of them learned of the cancellation via Twitter.

SGU has had its share of problems, even spawning a community of people who dislike the show. Can it be saved via fan support, given the steadily declining viewership numbers? Do you think the show had the potential to improve, let us know below?
