We previously reported that NBC had nixed plans for a new Lost in Space series, due in part to Jonathan Harris’ (Dr. Smith) death. Well, it appears things are moving again. Synthesis Entertainment, the company Kevin Burns (producer of a lot of those A&E Biographies) and Jon Jashni (Anna and the King) put together to resurrect Irwin Allen’s properties, partnering with director John Woo (M:I-2) and writer Doug Petrie (Buffy: The Vampire Slayer series), are planning a new series again, and a “strong response” was received from the networks. It is also aimed as a family drama like the original pilot, set 100 years in the future. Side note: Season 1 of the original series is due on DVD January 6th.
Update 10/9: The WB has order a pilot.
