This si what I gleaned from the Sci-Fi channel http://www.scifi.com:
The Sci Fi Channel will delve into the backstory of ¡°Battlestar
Galactica¡± with a new series The prequel, called ¡°Caprica,¡± heads a list of development projects the cable network unveiled Wednesday. Also in the works are a miniseries based on the book ¡°Chariots of the Gods¡± and series from Jesse Alexander (¡±Alias¡±), Christopher McQuarrie (¡±The Usual Suspects¡±), Eric
McCormack and Freddie Prinze Jr.
Additionally, legendary B-movie director Roger Corman will produce two films for Sci Fi¡¯s Saturday movie franchise: ¡°Cyclops,¡± about the mythical beast wreaking havoc on ancient Rome, and ¡°Supergator,¡± which pretty much explains itself.
¡°Caprica¡± will be set more than 50 years prior to the events of
¡°Battlestar Galactica¡± and focus on the lives of two families ¡ª the Adamas (ancestors of future Galactica commander William) and the Graystones.
Humankind¡¯s Twelve Colonies are at peace and on the verge of a
technological breakthrough: the first Cylon.
As ¡°Battlestar Galactica¡± is about a lot more than space battles,
¡°Caprica¡± will be as much family drama as sci-fi tale. Remi Aubuchon (¡±The Lyon¡¯s Den,¡± ¡°24¡å) is writing the pilot script; ¡°Galactica¡± veterans Ronald D. Moore and David Eick will executive produce it.
Now, given all this how interested will you be in seeing this? Being that I have more info, quite a bit, as long as the directing and qcting is well designed, and not just some big 2 hour plus ad for thje Galatica series. I don¡¯t believe we¡¯ve ever seen the origin of the Adamas and the Cylons before, at least I cannot recall.
