Re: sf/f TV development news - 2013

The promo for Ascension was reportedly put together to give an idea of the concept with footage shot specially for the promo. The mini-series hasn't actually started production yet, so some of the elements, like the ship design, might be different in the finished product.

Re: sf/f TV development news - 2013

^^ Ah, that's interesting. Slightly disappointing, actually, because I loved that trailer. I was looking at it as a kind of Steampunk, too-- Apollopunk, I guess. Certainly the most unique concept for a Space Opera that I've seen in a long while. In any case, that's one to look forward to.

The Dominion trailer looks like Supernatural with bigger guns. Not very interesting.

NBC has cancelled Believe. No surprise there.
Whoever scheduled this was an idiot. A lot of their potential audience first was watching Walking Dead. When that ended, Resurrection was the next logical choice (with bad guys from robocop & Eureka in against-type roles)... They should've waited till Resurrection was over.

NBC has ordered Constantine to series. All of the DC Comics shows ordered to pilot this season have now been ordered to series. There will be five DC Comics shows on the broadcast networks next season.
Arrow, Flash, Gotham, Constantine and ....?????

[QUOTE=Out Of My Vulcan Mind;9570493]NBC has set Constantine to premiere in the fall at 10pm following Grimm. Emerald City and Heroes Reborn are planned as mid-season shows.

Here are NBC's descriptions of the three shows:


HEROES REBORN

The saga behind the 2006 breakout series “Heroes” will continue as creator Tim Kring returns to the fold and develops new layers to his original superhero concept. This highly anticipated 13-episode miniseries will reconnect with the basic elements of the show’s first season where ordinary people were waking up to the fact that they had extraordinary abilities. This series will be preceded by a new digital series that will introduce audiences to the new characters and storylines that will take the “Heroes” phenomenon to new places.

I am actually looking forward to it...hopefully it will tie-in to the previous show. While several characters (or really their actors) have their own shows going on, I hope they bring back Noah Bennett, to help bridge the series.

Also, I REALLY liked the digital comic series. Looking forward to that returning as well. It'll provide good lead up to the new show.

The only character I would want to see return is Noah Bennett. I was tired of all the rest by the end of the series.

I gave the full list of SF/F drama shows that are slated for the 2014-2015 season on the broadcast networks here. In addition, there are two half-hour comedy SF/F shows slated for mid-season 2014-2015, namely Fox's The Last Man on Earth and ABC's Galavant.

IDW Entertainment & EOne To Develop Jonathan Maberry’s ‘V-Wars’ As Series

Three-time Emmy nominee Tim Schlattmann (Dexter, Smallville) will write the pilot based on Bram Stoker Award-winning author Jonathan Maberry’s best-selling book. V-Wars debuted as a collection of prose stories that chronicles the first Vampire War, and a second volume is scheduled for release in July. V-Wars is set in a world transformed by a catastrophic environmental event that releases a millennium-old virus that, once triggered, affects individuals differently depending on their DNA. The result is vampires as unique as their cultures and a response from those unaffected humans like never seen before. (The Walking Dead).

Ah, the Vampire Apocalypse. Well, the part about the different kinds of Vampires sounds interesting, anyway.

Extant looks interesting-I'm just afraid it will get all complicated, go on an over-long hiatus and drop so far in viewership that it never recovers, only to be canceled when it starts getting really good.

Isn't it just a miniseries? I swear I remember it being referred to as a limited series somewhere when they first started talking about it around the web.
