Hmm. "Zorro Hood." Or maybe "The Scarlet Pimperhood."

There are a number of space shows in development. We could get at least a couple within the next year or two. The leading contenders are Halo for Xbox One's TV service, Barbarella for Amazon's TV service, Incursion for Starz and a number of potential shows in development for Syfy.
Part of what sucks in this new TV reality is I'm not going to subscribe to Hulu+, Netflix, Amazon, and now XBox to get 1 or 2 shows that I want to watch on each service.

I'm already paying At&t $135/month for internet service, hd cable + HBO [for Game of Thrones] and have Netflix.

~ $140 a month is more than enough for, "entertainment."
You can always trade services. Get HBO for Game of Thrones, then drop it and pic up Netflix for whatever show you want there, etc...

Real pumped for Incursion if this can ever get off the ground. DeKnight did awesome things with Spartacus.

What if Robin Hood and his traditional nemesis, the Sheriff of Nottingham, were the same person? - BBC America Developing Robin Hood Drama Series ‘Nottingham’ From ‘Dracula’ Creator

Nottingham centers on the Sheriff of Nottingham whose wife is killed by King John’s men. When nobody is brought to justice, the Sheriff launches a one-man war against the Crown. By day, he remains the reviled Sheriff, loyal servant of the King, but by night he puts on a hood and, using the intelligence he gains from his office, attacks the King where it hurts the most – his coffers. As Robin Hood, he systematically raids the King’s men, his noble loyalists and political allies, giving the spoils to the starving peasantry and starting a rebellion that will change England forever.
Interesting. Dracula was good, and it sounds like this could do similar thing with Robin Hood. I'll most likely be checking it out.

Re: sf/f TV development news - 2013

It appears HBO are remaking the Channel 4 series Utopia with David Fincher directing and exec producing.
http://www.c21media.net/fincher-set-...medium=twitter

HBO has given a series order to a US version of UK conspiracy thriller Utopia and confirmed that House of Cards director David Fincher will direct and executive produce it.
The US version will be written by Gillian Flynn, who previously adapted her own novel for Fincher’s upcoming feature film Gone Girl. HBO – which didn’t specify an episode count for the series – will produce with Shine America.
HBO bought the remake rights to the UK series – about fans of an underground graphic novel who learn that the author has secretly written a sequel – last July, and Fincher (Fight Club, The Social Network) was immediately linked.
Fincher, who made his first foray into television last year as executive producer of the US version of House of Cards but directed only the first two episodes, will direct all episodes of the American Utopia, said HBO. He will executive produce with Joshua Donen, Jane Featherstone and Shine America’s Carolyn G Bernstein.
The six-episode first season of the UK version of Utopia, created by Dennis Kelly and produced by Shine America sister company Kudos Film & TV, aired in early 2013 on Channel 4. A second season was commissioned last March and shot late last year.

Wow, that description of Utopia's plot was rather vague. I was wondering what was the big deal about a comic-book sequel, so I checked the show's plot summary on Wikipedia, and the key point the press release left out is that the graphic novel supposedly predicts disasters.

Not exactly. It's a spoiler so I'll spoiler code it here...

^The point is, it's about something rather more massive than just an unpublished comic book, so the press release's description is poorly phrased.

Re: sf/f TV development news - 2013

Well fair point. They could probably give more information without spoiling. It's a very strange show, highly stylised, I quite enjoyed it and will no doubt watch the second series later this year.

Re: sf/f TV development news - 2013

The CW has given early renewals to Arrow, The Vampire Diaries, Supernatural, The Originals, and Reign. The first four renewals are no surprise. The ratings for Reign were such that it could have gone either way, so the renewal will come as a relief to fans of the show.

Hm, I'd been curious about that before, but it looks too grisly for my tastes.
