Cult gets axed – two weeks after green light
by Doc on Jan.31, 2006, under Television
Heather Graham may have lost her show after one airing, but Matthew Bomer lost his two weeks after he was cast. Farscape creator Rockne S. O’Bannon’s new project called Cult, which was given the green light by The WB two weeks ago and announced Bomer (Tru Calling) as being cast, has been cancelled by the new CW network, as it no longer fits “the programming needs of The CW.” However, WB Television (the studio, not the network) is going to shop the show at the next “selling season”.
Massively multiplayer Stargate game in development?
by Doc on Jan.31, 2006, under Games
It seems a group called Cheyenne Mountain Entertainment is working on a Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Game (MMORPG – the style of Everquest and World of Warcraft) based around the Stargate SG-1 and Stargate Atlantis environments called Stargate Worlds. Beyond the announcement, there is little information as of yet though. Interestingly – by the press releases, they announced what they were doing before they actually had a license agreement with MGM, who owns the franchise.
