Caught this one on The Official Red Dwarf Website: Hattie Hayridge (female Holly) and Craig Charles (Lister) from Red Dwarf will appear in an episode of Lexx next season (they call it the 4th series, including the original series of movies). The article is a bit confusing, but as near as I can tell, in the episode “P3X” Craig is a prison warden, and Hattie is his Texan wife and sub-warden.
Update: I have found evidence in a few locations that Lexx has been picked up for a full 24-episode run, and will air on the Sci-Fi Channel. Oddly, Series 3 lasted only 13 episodes. No idea of the plotline for Series 4, but given the end of Series 3, it should prove interesting…
CNN.com is reporting, according to Variety, that the Sci-Fi Channel will be getting the 4-hour Firestarter: The Next Chapter from Stephen King, following the main character from Firestarter 20 years later; Saint Sinner from Clive Barker, a TV movie about a 19th-century monk in modern-day Los Angeles hunting down two “buxom” female demons; and Taken, a 20-hour miniseries from Stephen Spielberg about three extended families over the course of 50 years after an alien abduction.
At the same time, it seems the Monday Prime lineup will move to Saturdays, with The Invisible Man moving back to Friday Prime to join Farscape and The Outer Limits, while Black Scorpion and The Secret Adventures of Jules Verne will try to find much-needed ratings on Saturday.
This just in from Sci-Fi Wire – JMS is working on Babylon 5: The Legend of the Rangers, a new TV movie to air later this year on the Sci-Fi Channel. According to the report, “The film will take up the story of the legendary Ranger fleet as it attempts to restore order to hundreds of civilizations devastated by the Shadow War.” It will also serve as a pilot for a new series.
Update: According to JMS, the above title is the heading for the movie and series. The title for the movie specifically is To Live and Die in Starlight. Read More for JMS’s announcement.
