shout out to tweetpeep ProgGrrl for the heads-up.
Last summer at press tour, SCI FI Channel taunted teased television critics by showing a clip of the BattleStar prequel, Caprica, starring Eric Stoltz. We got a bit worked up over the new series after NBC rolled out the red carpet - flying in the full cast and producers (Ron Moore et. al.) for a panel and letting us mingle during the NBC Universal bash.
EVP of original programming Mark Stern promised a decision would be forthcoming shortly after the net took delivery of the two-hour back-door pilot. (Click here to read my press tour blog post.)
But a few hours ago, Variety spilled the big news. Caprica is a go. Finally. Although the series won’t air until sometime in 2010. Still. It’s a go!
