Fox’s much anticipated sci-fi series Terra Nova, produced by Steven Spielberg, just suffered another set back. Reports are coming in that most of the writing staff on the show – which was delayed until Fall 2011 – was laid off this week. Show-runner Brandon Braga wasn’t let go though and apparently the layoffs could be temporary. They could either be due to a scheduling conflict or because the show needs to cut costs and having a bunch of writers sitting around when production doesn’t start until next summer isn’t cost effective. Either way, this is just another fascinating chapter in the story of a show that has had a very public behind the scenes life ever since it hit our radar. Centering on a family from the future who is sent into prehistoric times to save the world, there’s nothing but potential there. There’s much more info after the jump. Read More »

TV News: Ron Moore Revamping ‘Wild Wild West’; Shelley Conn Joins ‘Terra Nova’; Guillermo del Toro Rebooting ‘The Munsters’

The last time the TV show Wild Wild West was revamped, it resulted in an atrocious Barry Sonnenfeld film that stands as one of the more forgettable big-budget pictures of the ’90s. But the last time Ronald D. Moore revamped a show the result was the new Battlestar Galactica, which was better than anyone would ever have expected. So what will we get out of Mr. Moore’s new take on the classic Western show?
EW says the new Wild Wild West is in very early stages, with at least weeks before networks get a crack at buying it. The original show starred Robert Conrad and Ross Martin as Secret Service agents sent to patrol a territory in the Old West. What will this new one offer? With that setup there’s plenty of room for the mix of character, espionage and political commentary that made Battlestar Galactica so great.
After the break, Terra Nova gets a female lead, and Guillermo del Toro adds another possible project to his plate. Read More »
