I'm surprised at this because the show has basically become a juggernaut. It's got the audience: intellectuals plus Joe Six Pack and that's a big win.
So... where are all the nerdy copycat projects and what network will attempt it? What kind of angle will they use to try and change it (nerdy girl lead characters, etc)?
Wasn't able to dig much up on Google, just this:
"Coming to NBC: a group of small-town fanboys try to make continuing episodes of their favorite sci fi series after it is canceled"
- Written in 2009... I'm guessing this was never made!
