The first trailer for Tron: Uprising, the animated show being developed for Disney XD, has been released. If you liked the look of Tron: Legacy, you’ll like the look of this as it is taken right from the movie, but it looks like there is a touch of anime style as well for the characters. The story appears to be a prequel to Legacy, about an uprising that took place before the movie. It was good to here Bruce Boxleitner’s voice as Tron – perhaps he’ll get more lines than he did in the movie as well. Tron: Uprising should debut in the summer of 2012.
Seems a number of Battlestar Galactica actors are reappearing in the pilot landscape, and several are now attached to Ron Moore’s pilot of NBC, 17th Precinct, a drama that follows cops at the 17th Precinct in Excelsior, a fictional town where magic trumps science. Tricia Helfer is the latest to be cast, playing a necromancer named Morgana (modern twist of Merlin perhaps?). Jamie Bamber and James Callis have already been cast, along with Stockard Channing (The West Wing) as a former homicide detective and Eamonn Walker (Kings) as Detective Chief Inspector Wilder Blanks).
