In short, Buck Rogers Begins is a fairly low budget professional production, not just a fan production.
That is very cool to know. I think you guys should approach the SPACE channel in Canada about having it shown on their channel. They often show sci-fi films on their channel that were produced by independant filmmakers like yourselves. Buck Rogers Begins would definitely be something they would take an interest in showing to a mass audience.

In contrast, I wouldn't even bother with SyFy, at least until they've figured out just what the hell kind of channel they're actually trying to be.

Re: Any news on Cawley's Buck Rogers and Wild Wild West remakes?

I can't/won't speak for the folks making this Buck Rogers show, but where they can shop it will depend on what rights they've secured. For instance, they might've gotten web and broadcast/TV rights, or just web rights, and for specific markets. I've worked with licenses in my days as a videogame developer and I know that "rights" are usually specific to one market or another.

I saw this article from May where Gil Gerard and Erin Gray make it sound like the project has fallen apart... Gil Gerard: 'Buck Rogers' reboot is dead

F___ Gil Gerard I suspected.

But Erin Gray also seems to concur in that article.

IIRC, Gray and Gerard filmed their scene and were done.

Well, Gerard has never been shy about voicing his opinions about a given production. Just check out his interviews in Starlog and what a pack of idiots were working on that Buck Rogers.

In fiction he'd be called an unreliable narrator, to be polite.

Yes yes, Gil Gerard blah blah, but Erin Gray also said as much. Are we ignoring her because of him?

No. I merely note that to the best of my knowledge neither of them were involved in the production in any ongoing way and may not in fact know what's going on it with it.

Well, this is probably old news, but I think part of what happened, or hasn't happened, is that Retro Films tried to use Kickstarter to raise a budget, but only got pledges for one tenth of their goal.

They need to go the old fashioned route, and recruit investors.
