Hmm, I recall a proposed series that never saw the light of day called Beyond
that was a near-future, realistic look at a mission to Mars. Wonder if this is related? If so, they should retitle it Beyond
which has more zing than Mars Direct
, which is a godawful name for a TV show.
Good concept, very WRONG network. Someone classy like AMC or HBO, please do it instead.
Maybe they can produce a competitor? Just snap up Red Mars
and go for it.
I'm please to see that the article states the networks realize this season is full of fail and they need to suck significantly less next year.
