I’ve got a brand new preview of Season 4 of Battlestar Galactica on our YouTube Channel that was shown at the press event last night (and may be an exclusive for a little bit), along with 4 segments of another “special”, “Battlestar Galactica: Phenomena”, where various celebrities discuss the show. Read More to see the new videos, or simply go to our channel and see them all…Update: The problem with the choppy video is fixed.
Although originally announced almost two years ago, as part of last night’s press event, the SCI FI Channel has finally given the green light to Caprica the Battlestar Galactica prequel/back-door pilot, with production planned to start this Spring. Read More for the full press release.
The SCI FI Channel held a press event in NY last night, and out of it came several announcements. Rather than regurgitate all the press releases, I will try and summarize them here. I’ll leave out the reality show stuff (since I tend not to cover it), and Caprica will get its own article. Read More for the rest.
Co-executive producer of Bionic Woman, says via SCI FI Wire that the show has been canceled, although NBC has not said anything yet. Eick blamed “conditions under which we were making that show” and “I just felt that the process was so frustrating,” and in the end were unable to “bring it all together like we did with Battlestar.” Both NBC and SCIFI.com are owned by NBC Universal, so it seems pretty dead.
Kate from AtomFilms wrote us to let everyone know that AtomFilms is running the 2008 Star Wars Fan Movie Challenge: “Over here at AtomFilms we’re right in the thick of the 2008 Star Wars Fan Movie Challenge in partnership with Lucasfilm. We?d love it if you’d give the Closet Sci-Fi Geek readers a heads up that submissions are due by MAY 27 for the 2008 contest.
Star Wars fans should submit their parody, fan fiction or MASH-UP (new this year we even have a special tool for fans to create a mash-up online) by MAY 27 for consideration in this year’s Star Wars Fan Movie Challenge. Top fan movies will be selected by AtomFilms and Lucasfilm including GEORGE LUCAS as one of the judges! Awards will be announced at San Diego Comic Con on July 24th and at least one of the award-winning movies will air on SpikeTV!” The entries last year were pretty impressive – if you’ve been waiting to make your own Episode, or just have some SW-related fun, now’s your chance.
