Television producer, writer, and creator Glen A. Larson has passed away at the age of 77. Larson's contributions to television include such beloved classics as ‘Knight Rider,’ ‘Magnum P.I.,’ the original ‘Battlestar Galactica,’ and he was involved in the development of ‘The Six Million Dollar Man.’ The three-time Emmy-nominated Larson began his career in 1956 as a member of the music group The Four Preps, and transitioned into television, working on the 1966 series ‘The Fugitive.’
Of all the series we'd never have expected to shake things up with a time jump, NBC's 'Parks and Recreation' went lightyears ahead in "Moving Up" to its sixth season finale last night. And while NBC hasn't confirmed the seventh season as its last, producer Mike Schur got on the horn to discuss the show's surprising fast-forward, including one very 'Mad' man cameo, and what it means for the future Pawnee of 2017.
Universal is now working on a third version of 'Battlestar Galactica,' this time for the big screen, and have hired 'Transcendence' screenwriter Jack Paglen to write it. As when Ron Moore did it, it's likely that it will take the basic outline and go its own way with it (though there will surely be Cylons and a character named Starbuck).
The events of 'Supernatural' season 8 finale "Sacrifice" sent a huge number of potential new characters hurtling from the sky, and it seems season 9 has tapped yet another 'Battlestar Galactica' star and all-around genre vet for the first of them. Tahmoh Penikett will appear in the October 8 premiere to kick off a multi-episode arc in season 9, but who might the star have fallen from grace to play?
As excited as we were for 'Battlestar Galactica' creator Ron Moore to return for Syfy's upcoming original series 'Helix,' it seems the prolific sci-fi vet has an even higher-profile gig at Starz! The cable network has officially issued a series order to time travel romance 'Outlander,' based on the popular Diana Gabaldon books of the same name, but just how involved will Ron Moore be?
TNT's alien action-drama 'Falling Skies' won't air its third season until Sunday June 9, but already the acclaimed series has made a major change in anticipation of a fourth season pickup. Season 2 and 3 showrunner Remi Aubuchon will step down from the series, tasking former 'Battlestar Galactica' and fellow 'Caprica' showrunner David Eick to take his place, but will anything change for 'Falling Skies' season 4? Find out about the future of the series inside!
Among Syfy's numerous pilot offerings for the 2013-14 pilot season, we're most excited to get a look at 'Helix,' a dark new sci-fi thriller executive produced by 'Battlestar Galactica' redux creator and show-runner Ron Moore. The hotly-anticipated new series has just given out its first teaser trailer, but is it as dark and unsettling as we've dreamed? Get a first look at Ron Moore's new Syfy thriller 'Helix' inside!
No, it's not another 'Battlestar Galactica' prequel in the vein of the recent 'Blood & Chrome,' but we'll take any excuse to get series creator Ron Moore's work back on TV. Following initial reports in January, Syfy has officially ordered the 'Battlestar Galactica' helmer's new sci-fi series 'Helix' for a full 13 episodes, but will Moore himself be at the helm? Find out the genetic make-up of Ron Moore's new series 'Helix' inside!
ScreenCrush is partnering up with sibling site GuySpeed for a weekly DVD giveaway. This week, we've got five (count 'em five!) copies of 'Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome -- UNRATED Edition' on Blu-ray combo pack.
We're still surprised AMC decided to revive controversial murder-mystery 'The Killing' for a third season at all, let alone that the Seattle-based drama has continued to add so many new regulars to the season. Following the major casting of Peter Sarsgaard as the season's villain and numerous other series regulars, 'The Killing' has now added 'Battlestar Galactica' vet Aaron Douglas and 'Flashpoint' star Hugh Dillon into the mix as a series regular, but who will the new 'Killing' season 3 stars play?
