Re: the state of sf/f TV development for 2012-13

Do you remember the Cinemax sci-fi television project 'The Sector' announced in April?

"...director siblings Ridley and Tony Scott, through their Scott Free Productions, are working to bring the new television series The Sector to Cinemax.

Envisioned as Blade Runner meets District 9, The Sector is intended to be an action oriented sci-fi program following “the commander of a paramilitary unit who pursues a dangerous new race of genetically enhanced humans."

"Coincidentally enough, the Scott boys aren’t the only ones sharing DNA involved in the show. Sibling writers, Matthew and Aaron Benay, created The Sector and wrote the script to the pilot episode."

I thought the idea sounded as if it had promise but Cinemax ultimately passed. There was word in late August, however, that Discovery's Science Channel was considering picking it up, which could be interesting if they saw it as the program to back as their first original sci-fi drama.

I have no idea what sort of shot this has to make it to air, but it's another one to keep an eye on.
