VIRTUALITY air date moved to June 26, 2009

Interesting news from Fox in my inbox this morning. Wonder what prompted the move from its original July 4th air date? Should we be excited...or depressed, since Fox clearly calls this a "movie" now, rather than a "pilot."

Either way: can't wait to see it. Seat42F and HitFix posted the newly-released cast photos, here's one below:

FOX’s original science-fiction thriller movie VIRTUALITY will make its World Broadcast Premiere on Friday, June 26 (8:00-10:00 PM ET/PT), and headlining the all-star cast is familiar face Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (“New Amsterdam”). Nikolaj plays Commander Frank Pike, head of a space crew embarking on a 10-year journey through outer space in order to save an unsustainable Earth...all before the eyes of a worldwide audience. But when the crew’s cutting-edge virtual reality technology, meant to maintain their sanity on the long voyage, starts to go horribly wrong, the Commander must make a crucial decision.

Highly anticipated in the sci-fi world, VIRTUALITY was produced by Ronald D. Moore (“Battlestar Galactica,” “Star Trek: The Next Generation,” “Caprica”) and Michael Taylor (“Battlestar Galactica,” “Star Trek: Voyager,” “Caprica”), and it was directed by Peter Berg (“Friday Night Lights,” “Hancock”).

The 2-hour movie raises fascinating questions about the lines (or lack thereof) between reality and virtual reality. What would you do if you were faced with the prospect of going on a 10-year space journey to another planet in order to save an Earth ravaged by global warming, food shortages and degradation? Would you be more apt to go if you had a way of slipping away into your own simulated virtual-reality to pass the time? Would you be able to distinguish this new reality from your old one? What if something started going horribly wrong on your voyage – would you turn back, even with a worldwide audience back on Earth anxiously awaiting news of their planet’s salvation? Or would you continue, uncertain of whether your own life, virtual or otherwise, was in imminent danger?

Sounds like a deeper take on the v-club in Caprica.

Hah, well, I've read the script. Trust me it's different. But there is nothing wrong with exploring the concept from a bunch of different angles, on a bunch of different projects... now is there?

At this point, I'm just glad it's being shown on TV at all. Thanks for the update.

Fox is a worthless company that destroyed Millennium after Season 1 by trying to dumb it down and make it like the X-Files with a conspiracy and all. It only left X-
Files alone because it was a ratings success.

I'm just glad we're getting to see the unspoiled pilot. Fox would have ruined it as a series, anyway. And maybe Ron Moore will stick around and write more scripts for Caprica? Eh? One can hope.
