Since I heard about Rockne O'Bannon new project - Defiance - I wanted to know more.
Unfortunately O'Bannon isn't involved past the initial creation. The showrunners are Kevin Murphy of Desperate Housewives
(not the same Kevin Murphy who was Servo on Mystery Science Theater 3000
) and Michael Taylor of Voyager
I think the main draw for me here will be the cast. Tony Curran and Jaime Murray are worth watching, and I really liked Stephanie Leonidas in MirrorMask
, though I'm disappointed that she's using an American accent here. (I mean, she's playing an alien! Aren't aliens usually British?) Julie Benz is pretty good too.
