I’m just learning of reports that the remake of the classic British SF series Blake’s 7 from Georgiaville Television, which I’ve been asking for years, is no longer in development at Syfy, but may be nearing a series order from Microsoft, of all companies, to become one of the first original series offered over the Xbox Live service.
Xbox Live may also get the Halo series long in development at Steven Spielberg’s Amblin TV.
Actress Dana Davis (Franklin & Bash, Heroes) and actor Peter Macon (Ashes) have signed on as regulars for the Syfy pilot High Moon.
Davis will play Yama Winehart, a Moon environmentalist who was the first – and only – child born on the Moon. Due to pre-natal problems due to the artificial gravity, she can never leave the Moon.
Macon will play General Gale Lynn Winehart, Yama’s father and a hard-nosed Army general.
