Re: sf/f TV development news - 2012

I had a horrible flashback to that summer series on NBC where everyone was trapped in some town and under surveillance for reasons none of them could figure out. I couldn't stand it long enough to ever find out what the deal was.

Re: sf/f TV development news - 2012

Casting news for Lifetime's witch series and something about clones from BBCA.

Hotty Patrick Heusinger was a major reason I was rooting for Beautiful People to get picked up. Nice to see him resurface in a new show, odds are now much greater that I'll give it a look.

But what is it about clones, anyway? I can't recall any sci fi movie, TV show or book about clones that I ever liked much.

Embrace, Jessica Shirvington’s recently published opening novel in a young adult book series hailed as a potential successor to Twilight, is headed to television. The CW has teamed with Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Television to adapt the book as a drama series eyed for next season. Spielberg is reverting to the Amblin TV moniker he once used on ER. Since the 1994 launch of DreamWorks, his TV series had been produced under the DreamWorks TV banner.

Bill Laurin and Glenn Davis will write Embrace, described as being in the vein of Buffy and Vampire Diaries. It centers on 20-something Violet Eden who discovers that she is half angel and the key to a centuries old war between fallen angels and their earthly protectors. Laurin and Davis will executive produce alongside Spielberg’s co-heads
of television Justin Falvey and Darryl Frank.

Re: sf/f TV development news - 2012

Ahhh you beat me again!

Not about vampires, anyway...sounds like Reaper only without the comedy. I still kinda miss that show...

Armie Hammer's out of their price range now but he'd be a great Lucifer if they need one.

What can I saw, clones are so mundane. It's like making a show about going to the grocery store would be for hewmons.

..but even DS9 didn't use the clone concept as anything but a thin excuse to bring back Jeffrey Combs.

Re: sf/f TV development news - 2012

I like The Clone Wars despite the clones. I've complained so much about how damn boring the clone-centric episodies are, that I'm sure everyone is sick of it by now.

Hey more news!

Action thriller Vigilant, written by Max Landis (Chronicle), which went to Fox in a script deal with penalty, is a “superhero” origin story told through the unlikely POV of a brilliant 20-year old woman who is also a social outcast. After an honorable veteran detective is brutally coerced into working for the corrupt head of Internal Affairs, the detective’s daughter plans her revenge by meticulously constructing a fictional vigilante persona to take on the criminal elements within the police department and the city.
There's also a mention of an "untitled futuristic thriller for NBC."

CW Developing Contemporary ‘Alice In Wonderland’ With McG And Chad Hodge

The CW is jumping down a rabbit hole to Wunderland, putting in development a contemporary reimagining of Alice In Wonderland. Fittingly, Wunderland hails from McG‘s Warner Bros TV-based production company Wonderland Sound And Vision, in association with WBTV. Written by The Playboy Club creator Chad Hodge, the drama project centers on a young female detective in present-day Los Angeles who discovers another world that exists under the surface of this ultra-modern city. Hodge will write the script and executive produce with McG and Wonderland’s Peter Johnson. This is one of two public domain properties the CW is developing as potential drama series for next season, along with Sleepy Hollow, which also is being produced by WBTV.

What's bad about Wunderland? It's just the German word for "Wonderland." In Larry Niven's Known Space series, it's the name of the human colony world at Alpha Centauri.

Or are you reading it as a portmanteau of "Wonderland" and "under," since it's underneath LA? I suppose that might be the case, since it's unclear why a show set in LA would have a German title.

Re: sf/f TV development news - 2012

http://www.deadline.com/2012/09/high...-with-penalty/

Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles developer/executive producer Josh Friedman has set up a second drama project in a script deal that has a significant penalty attached to it. ABC has bought Chosen, described as a unique tale of family struggle, teen romance and California evil. It explores how a family’s life is upended when their 15-year-old daughter is identified as the reincarnated prophet of a mysterious South American religion. But is she their messiah, or a pawn in a darker conspiracy?
