It’s been the better part of a year since learning that Breaking Bad star Bryan Cranston would produce and star in a new sci-fi anthology series based on the writings of Philip K. Dick, brought to life by Battlestar Galactica alum Ron Moore. Now, Amazon confirms a pickup for Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams, based on the author’s short stories.
Do androids dream of Bryan Cranston? This is a very real question we’ll get to answer in the near future, as the former Breaking Bad star and all-around TV treasure Cranston has signed on to lead a new sci-fi anthology series based on the writings of Philip K. Dick, and brought to life by none other than Battlestar Galactica alum Ron Moore.
Starz's adapted 'Outlander' series garnered considerable interest from fans of Diana Gabaldon's best-selling novels well before the series formally premiered, and it seems the cable network isn't waiting on its good fortune to greenlight another season. "Book Two" is officially a go for 'Outlander,' stretching the time-traveling romance into another season to come in 2015.
Fans of Diana Gabaldon's steamy sci-fi romance 'Outlander' have been eagerly anticipating the Starz adaptation due to premiere on August 9, but now the Ronald Moore drama will come a bit earlier than expected. And speaking of adult reading material, find out how close we came to having the '50 Shades of Grey' film instead tied up as a Starz TV series!
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.

Find out the genetic make-up of Ron Moore's new series 'Helix' inside!
Even though Syfy's brief 'Battlestar Galactica' revival mini-series "Blood & Chrome" didn't exactly light the world on fire, any sci-fi fan would recognize series creator Ron Moore's contribution to science fiction across the board. Recently rumored to have written episodes of the (potentially) shelved 'Star Wars' TV series, Moore's next project will most likely take him back to the Syfy channel, as the writer nears a deal for a straight-to-series order of a new "dark thriller" titled 'Helix.' Find out the make-up of Ron Moore's new series inside!
Before we all let the tragic reminder of Heath Ledger's untimely death sink in (too late), it seems some of his work may find new life. From the looks of it, ABC and former 'Battlestar Galactica' showrunner Ron Moore are getting ready to rock you, developing an adaptation of Ledger's 2001 jousting feature 'A Knight's Tale' for the small screen! But, will the new adaptation feature the same contemporary feel and modern soundtrack as its predecessor?
