The producers of writer-director Seth Larney's science fiction project Subject 14 have set an ambitious goal for themselves, aiming to raise a hundred thousand Australian dollars in a crowd funding campaign to get the project off the ground. But given the quality of the material, an unusual transmedia approach and the presence of Battlestar Galactica producer Michael Rymer on the team - as is Oscar nominated director Luke Doolan, serving here as editor - I very much hope they make their goal.From a dystopian future, where the planet has been deforested and an oxygen crisis consumes the lives of many on earth, a young man is forced into a newly developed time machine, when a message is received from the future with his name in...

The comedy Sirens will debut its second season the preceding night, Tuesday, Jan. 27 at 10 pm.
Suits‘ midseason finale saw Louis learning Mike’s secret and then demanding name partnership from Jessica in exchange for his silence.
This Tuesday at 8/7c, a Thanksgiving-themed episode of CBS’ NCIS will serve a side dish of Bishop insight alongside a main course of terrorist drama, when the probie agent, her husband Jake and Agent Tony Dinozzo spend their time stranded at the airport investigating a threat to holiday travelers.
Coming on the heels of an episode which shed much-needed light on Gibbs’ kid-gloves treatment of Bishop, TVLine thought it time to check in with Emily Wickersham on that emotional reveal, Battlestar Galactica alum Jamie Bamber‘s debut as her TV husband and more.

For those of you who are fans of the original 1978 Battlestar Galactica series, you’re going to want to check this out. It’s a demo reel created by Adam “Mojo” Lebowitz that gives us a look at what a digitally restored special edition of Battlestar Galactica would look like with a CGI upgrade, and it’s freakin' glorious! If he actually had a budget and a team to work with, imagine what they could do. The same thing was done for the original Star Trek series, so why not give Battlestar a little love?!
Lebowitz has worked as a Senior Computer Animator on Babylon 5, a Visual Effects Supervisor on the 2001 restoration of Star Trek: The Motion Picture, a digital artist on Serenity, a Computer Graphics Animation Supervisor on Star Trek: Voyager, and a previz artist on Oz: The Great and Powerful. He was also a CGI artist on »

Hatch - who played Apollo in the original '70s series and Tom Zarek in the '00s remake - told Digital Spy that the film would "have a huge audience".
"I think a Battlestar movie would be extraordinary," he said.
"I know they're talking about it, trying to work on a script - and I think a new movie would probably launch a new Battlestar Galactica series [on television]."
The original Battlestar Galactica ran for a single season from 1978-79, with the new film expected to be a reinvention of the franchise.
"I don't think this story has been fully explored," Hatch said. "It's a never-ending plethora of dramatic possibilities.
"There's a vast dramatic topography to explore and the audience can't get enough - they're hungry for more."
Hatch added that he would "love »

As seen in the exclusive sneak peek above, Holly (played by Kristen Johnston) is passing herself off as a widow, to join a grief support group and thus hopefully meet a (tragically eligible) man.
Will her new acquaintance Jeff (played by Battlestar Galactica alum Michael Trucco) be the one to give Holly the good… um, grief she craves? Press play to see how that rather unconventional bid for romance plays out.

As the creator of TV series such as Battlestar Galactica, Quincy, Magnum Pi and The Fall Guy, the producer and writer Glen Larson, who has died aged 77, was one of the most astute makers of small-screen American dramas in the 1970s and 80s. He made TV gold from the most unlikely material, whether it be a show premised on a talking car (the 1982-86 drama Knight Rider, starring David Hasselhoff as a crime fighter aided by a Pontiac Trans Am with artificial intelligence), a culture-clash cop show featuring a sheriff from New Mexico transferred with his horse to crime-fighting in Manhattan (the 1970-77 series McCloud, starring Dennis Weaver) or the Mormon beliefs that he mobilised in the creation of the science-fiction series Battlestar Galactica (1978).

The science-fiction and television world are mourning Glen A. Larson, the popular television producer and writer who died Friday at the age of 77. Larson created a number of television properties in the 1970s and '80s that have stood the test of time, including the original "Battlestar Galactica" on ABC and "Knight Rider" on NBC. While he would continue to receive credit for the reboot of the franchise more than a decade ago by the former SciFi Channel, he was never a supporter of the series. Richard Hatch, who starred in the original series as Apollo and returned to play a new character in the SciFi Channel version, shared his condolences to the Larson family on Facebook. "He was one of a kind," Hatch said, adding that Larson at the time was still working on a new "Battlestar Galactica" »
Battlestar and Knight Rider creator Glen A Larson has sadly passed away, at the age of 77.
Sad news, this. Glen A Larson passed away on Friday night, after a battle with esophageal cancer.
Glen A Larson is credited with creating an array of much-loved TV programmes, including the original Battlestar Galactica, Knight Rider and Magnum P.I., as well as co-developing Buck Rogers In The 25th Century with Leslie Stevens.
Reflecting on his shows a while ago, Glen A Larson told TV Archive they "were enjoyable, they had a pretty decent dose of humor. All struck a chord in the mainstream. What we weren’t going to do was win a shelf full of Emmys. We got plenty of nominations for things, but ours were not the kind »
Tributes have been flying back and forth this weekend in the wake of the death of legendary TV creator Glen A. Larson who passed away from esophageal cancer at the age of 77.
Larson was the man behind a dozen hit television series in the 1970s and 1980s including the original "Battlestar Galactica," "Knight Rider," "Magnum P.I.," "Manimal," "The Fall Guy," "Quincey M.E.," "Alias Smith And Jones" and "Buck Rogers in the 25th Century".

The iconic television writer, creator, and producer Glen A. Larson passed away Friday, November 14, at the age of 77.
Larson was perhaps best known for creating some of the most iconic TV shows of the 1970s and '80s including Alias Smith and Jones, McCloud, Buck Rogers In The 25th Century, B.J. And The Bear, Trauma Center, Quincy M.E., Manimal, The Fall Guy, and Magnum P.I..
However, two of Larson's most lasting creations are still cultural touchstones to this day. In 1982, Larson introduced Kitt, the artificially intelligent car, and David Hasselhoff's Michael Knight to American audiences with Knight Rider, and it quickly became one of the biggest TV hits of its day.

Four years prior, Larson created a show that would, much later, become a hugely celebrated franchise. In 1978, Larson brought the cult classic sci-fi series Battlestar Galactica to TVs across the country.
