SciFi Greenlights 'Caprica'

According to Variety, we'll be seeing the series in 2010. Production is to begin around the middle of next year and they are trying to "regroup the core" of BSG's writing staff. We'll see how that works out.

"'Battlestar Galactica' was absolutely our flagship show. It put us on the map and helped transform the perception of the network," said Sci Fi prexy Dave Howe, noting that the cabler hopes to draw a broader audience to a series it sees as more compelling family drama than "space opera."

"We want people to come to this who have never heard of 'Battlestar Galactica,'" he added. "I think, because ('Galactica's') backdrop was space and spaceships, there was a barrier to entry for some viewers. 'Caprica' has none of that. It's an intense family drama set on an Earthlike planet, in the near future, speaking to a lot of the ethical dilemmas that we as a human race are going to have to face very shortly."

Family drama on SciFi? OK. To be honest, I haven't been keen on the idea of Caprica and rewatching BSG from the beginning has made me less keen on the idea. I'll elaborate as to why when I post thoughts on my rewatch.
