NBC announcements: Heroes in, Origins out, more

by on Apr.03, 2008, under Television

Aside from Knight Rider, The Peacock has made a variety of SF-related announcements. First up is Heroes, which will return on September 15th, allowing time for the producers time to get ahead in planning, leading up to a 3-hour Heroes event, with a clip show and then a 2-hour movie. However, the planned prequel series Heroes: Origins has been scrapped. Medium has also been renewed. NBC also unveiled a late of new programs as well (see the article for all the details) that will air spread out over the next 18 or so months. Some interesting highlights: Merlin, starring Colin Morgan (mysteriously billed as being in Doctor Who, but I have no reference), exploring the lives of Merlin and Arthur before they became legends; and My Own Worst Enemy, starring Christian Slater, which sounds similar to the excellent British mini Jekyll, mixed with Bourne Idendity.
