Sci Fi Channel has announced a new spinoff series from BATTLESTAR GALACTICA. CAPRICA will be set about 50 years before and will center on the cataclysmic events that inform the current series.
The new series will be more about how the "bad guys' rise to power." It will detail how robotic Cylon Alliance rose to power and decimated the 12 Colonies of Kobol (Caprica is the name of the largest planet in the system).
CAPRICA will weave together corporate intrigue, techno-action and sexual politics into television's first science fiction family saga.
The new series is being and executive-produced by Ronald D. Moore and David Eick. 24's Remi Aubuchon will write the script.
