There are some crumbs of news this week about another show we BSG fans are keeping our eyes out for: Ron Moore and Michael Taylor’s VIRTUALITY. According to The Hollywood Reporter, Fox is looking at the pilot now and it “might stay in consideration for May and be reworked as a more mainstream drama.”
Hmm. Is that news is making you even more nervous than Fox’s previous announcement about DOLLHOUSE getting a death slot? Well here’s something that might cheer you up: through some random googling, Sitrep has discovered that Wendy & Lisa are working on the musical score to the VIRTUALITY pilot. Which will be great stuff, I'm sure. (W&L fans out there: apparently they are also about to release a new record, their first in 10 years). Wendy & Lisa's music has been featured on HEROES, CARNIVALE, CROSSING JORDAN, and they are also working on the new Showtime series NURSE JACKIE with Edie Falco.
More off the wireless...
Polly Walker (CAPRICA) has become a BSG fan while catching up on the show, and is looking forward to going to fandom conventions. And we are looking forward to having you, my dear!
Jane Espenson, BSG writer, BSG webisode writer, and writer of the post-series TV film BSG: THE PLAN, will be a guest on SyFy Radio December 18th.

Speaking of Los Angeles…if you’re going to be in town for the huge Props and Costumes auction the weekend of January 16-18, 2009, you should definitely hang with the BSGcast folks because they are planning some fun stuff to celebrate the season premiere and preview the auction. I may be in L.A. for that, fingers crossed...

Oh and speaking of DOLLHOUSE and that, erm, "death slot"...have all of you heard the news? There's going to be an exciting new "Sci Fi Friday" happening, starting Friday February 13, 2009. That's when the following 3-hour block of TV will suddenly coalesce across two TV networks:
FOX, 8pm: TERMINATOR: THE SARAH CONNOR CHRONICLES

Pretty nerdalicious. We BSG fans are so comfy in the death slot already, aren't we? Not only will I stay home on Fridays for this lineup -- I might not even use my DVR. ::gasp:: It's worth pointing out the number of BSG alumni who will be spread across those two earlier hours: Jane Espenson...Tahmoh Penikett...Mark Sheppard...Toni Graphia...Stephanie Jacobsen...
