Re: sf/f TV development news - 2012

Angsty teen aliens on the CW.

The CW is boosting its sci-fi cred with Oxygen, an alien drama in the vein of District 9 ... Oxygen follows a high school pilot program, the first attempt to integrate a group of humanoid aliens stranded on earth who until now have been living in forced segregation. The program is complicated by the prejudices and competing agendas on all sides, and could be saved or destroyed by a burgeoning romance between a human girl and alien boy.
And of course they'll all look like crawdads and not Ian Somerhalder.

Anyway, seems like sf/f is getting a lot of attention this year, considering how early in the process it is. It's a challenge even to keep up with it all.
