Hmm, Starz getting into the space opera genre?

Spartacus creator Steven S. DeKnight is working on Incursion, a sci-fi action thriller about soldiers engaged in war with an alien race. The hook: Each season will take place on a new planet as the good guys push farther and farther onto the extraterrestrials’ turf. The project, which promises harsh combat scenes and complex male and female characters set against an intergalactic backdrop, is part of DeKnight’s overall deal with the cable channel.

Sounds like it will be treading into Starship Troopers/Forever War/Old Man's War territory. It seems like it could be a good fit with DeKnight's Spartacus sensibilities and heavy green-screen usage.

Oh, and JMS is working on some Dracula show.
