This sounds interesting.
This was in the Hollywood Reporter yesterday.
Any thoughts on this?Huge news for sci-fi fans: Fox is developing a stateside version of the U.K. hit series “Torchwood.”
The project is from BBC Worldwide Prods., with original series creator Russell Davies writing the script.
Unlike U.S. adaptations that have gone awry, “Torchwood” fans can take comfort that the original producing team is on board. In addition to Davies, exec producers include Davies’ producing partner Julie Gardner (former head of drama at BBC Wales for the show’s first season) and Jane Tranter (another BBC vet, now exec VP programming and production at BBC Worldwide Prods. in the U.S.).
Also, some of the current cast — most likely John Barrowman, who plays the immortal Capt. Jack Harkness — might star if Fox orders “Torchwood” to pilot.
As for the new show’s plot, the U.S. version will contain a global story line compared to the more localized sensibility of the first two BBC seasons.
