Tube Bits for 02/12/2008

  • The Terminator train just keeps on rolling. Just recently The Sarah Connor Chronicles has graced our TVs (mmm, Summer Glau), now we hear that a new Terminator trilogy is in the offing, to be directed by McG and starring Christian Bale as John Connor. It will take place in 2019 and will feature a darker feel than the previous movies.
  • ComicMix informs us that 70 years ago, the Brits created the first science fiction TV program, an adaptation of a section of the Karel Capek play “R.U.R.” Cool!
  • Damon Lindeloff, executive producer of LOST, lets us know that new episodes of LOST could begin airing after the current eight, and he also says: “I don’t see why we couldn’t deliver all eight remaining episodes.” Good news indeed for LOST fans.
  • Michael Cassutt, of The Cassutt Files over on Sci Fi Weekly, talks about science fiction spec scripts for TV, and why they may be in a slump. The big reason being that the two big, ongoing sci fi series, Heroes and LOST, make it difficult for writers to write something new within their serialized universe. Of course, he points out there is one show that is successful and not necessarily serialized: Dr. Who. Anyone looking to write a spec script should look there for their setting.
