Among some of the more direct news to come out of Starz' TCA press tour panel, including an exceptionally early renewal for Michael Bay pirate drama 'Black Sails,' the premium cable network offered up a few updates on some of its more skeptical properties. 'Spartacus' creator Steven S. DeKnight's 'Halo' meets 'Band of Brothers' project 'Incursion' remains very much in play, though 'Boss' and 'Magic City' fans have a bitter pill to swallow.
Sad as we were to see 'Spartacus' bite the sand earlier this year, we took great comfort in both the possibility of a spin-off and series creator Steven S. DeKnight's interstellar war drama 'Incursion' potentially moving forward at Starz. Now, reports have emerged suggesting DeKnight's 'Incursion' has cooled in the pre-production phase, but does that mean Starz will pass on the series?
While 'Spartacus: War of the Damned' will close out the series and potentially franchise with tomorrow night's series finale event "Victory," series creator Steven S. DeKnight is already hard at work on a new sci-fi series for Starz, the 'Alien' and 'Halo' inspired 'Incursion.' Relatively little was known about the new project before now, so hear what DeKnight has to say about the epic new sci-fi series and its Ripley-like female lead!
Starz is continuing their mission to join the ranks of HBO and Showtime with original premium content, their two latest projects in development being two dramas from the writers behind 'Spartacus' and 'Thor.'
