No Lost in Space from NBC

by on Nov.27, 2002, under Television

Back in January we had reported that NBC had commissioned a script from FOX Television for a new Lost in Space; well SyFy Portal is now reporting that NBC has cancelled its plans.

But the recent death of Harris at some level affected whatever the plan was, as well as enthusiasm for the project. NBC also didn’t want to spend a ton of money on the telefilm. But its not dead yet…

casting director and staff of Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban
politely asking that Jason Carter be cast in the role of Sirius Black.”

Fans of the cancelled Farscape are taking their campaign to restore the show one step futher – they have produced a commercial based on the SCI FI Channel’s “I am Sci-Fi” commercials, and will have it aired on cable systems in 24 cities next week.
