Melbourne, Jan 18 : Sci-Fi Channel might put the original 'Battlestar Galactica' prequel series 'Caprica' into production.
Tv Guide's 'Sci-Fi Preview' is reporting that the channel is considering the production due to the lack of scripts because of the writers' strike.
"I just got a call from NBC-Universal. They want us to take another look at the project," Moviehole quoted Mark Stern, SciFi Channel vice president, as stating in a magazine.
The show will be set on the fictional planet Caprica, approximately fifty to seventy years before the events depicted in the re-imagined series.
It will tell the story of the Twelve Colonies at peace and living in a society not unlike our own.
But high technology and a startling breakthrough in robotics brings to life the age-old dream of marrying artificial intelligence with mechanical bodies to create the first living robots - the Cylons.
They are researched and built, ultimately leading to the First Cylon War.
