G4 and MGM TV have gotten together and are producing an animated series based on Spaceballs, Mel Brooks’ cult-hit spoof of Star Wars. A one-hour pilot and 13 half-hour episodes are ordered, and will air in the U.S. on G4. Brooks will reprise his roles in voice, and helped write the pilot.
Russell T. Davies is explaining why the Doctor doesn’t get into space much. Despite last season’s two-parter of “The Impossible Planet/Satan’s Pit” being set around a black hole, Davies says about episodes like that, “They’re hugely expensive,” and “The programmes that do show alien planets are not prime-time programmes.” Apparently the BBC hasn’t seen fit to give the show its deserved budget.
