A few additional tidbits about Ron Moore’s new project with Michael Taylor, VIRTUALITY… It looks like the pilot may be shot this summer, with the hopes of launching February 2009. IGN points out some more details:
There will also be an online component to the series, involving streaming episodes that feature the same cast and essentially serve as a reality series "show within a show." The reality series, in the world of Virtuality is partly what funds the journey. How this will come to fruition remains to be seen, as online components to network series have failed to come to be in the past.
In addition to the involvement of Moore as executive producer, fellow Battlestar Galactica alum Michael Taylor will also be on board as producer. Adding to the mix is the possible inclusion of Martin Campbell, director of Casino Royale, to direct the pilot episode. Virtuality is being geared up for a possible launch in February of 2009. No cast has been attached yet, but it won't be too surprising to see some of the Battlestar cast make an appearance in this new venture.
Let's hope there is indeed room for some BSG cast on this show.
With Fox prepping pilots and/or series with three of SF&F TV’s biggest names (Whedon, Abrams, Moore), and new film or TV genre fare being announced almost daily, it seems that Reel Fanatic’s question is quite valid: are we in a golden age of Sci-Fi and Fantasy?
