The new streaming service launched the first For All Mankind season 2 trailer during the show’s Comic-Con virtual panel this past weekend, and you can watch it below right now.

There’s a new Battlestar Galactica reboot in the works, and it might end up being more familiar than expected. Mr. Robot creator Sam Esmail is developing the new Battlestar for the upcoming NBC streaming service Peacock, and according to Ronald D. Moore, who created the previous Battlestar reboot, Esmail’s series might be set in the same universe as Moore’s. And that makes a certain sense based on how Moore’s show ended. Spoilers for the 2004-2009 Battlestar Galactica reboot follow.

Moore has a new show coming soon on Apple TV+ called For All Mankind that envisions that alternate history, and the first trailer has already lifted off. Check it out below.

Philip K. Dick has been the inspiration for many movies and TV shows. Films like Blade Runner and Total Recall were based on his stories Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? and We Can Remember It For You Wholesale. The Man in the High Castle has been updated for television on Amazon. Movies like Paycheck and Minority Report are based on Dick’s writing.
Another sci-fi veteran, Ronald D. Moore, is bringing more Philip K. Dick to television. Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams is an anthology series featuring a different Dick adaptation each episode. Moore created the 2004 Battlestar Galactica reboot and began his career on Star Trek: The Next Generation. He has continued to work in genre television – his recent work includes Helix and Outlander. This new series is very much in his wheelhouse.
Moore spoke with us about Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams ahead of the show’s January 12, 2018 premiere on Amazon.

It’s called Showrunners: The Art of Running a TV Show by Tara Bennett and it features the words and wisdom of famous showrunners like Joss Whedon, Damon Lindelof, Ronald D. Moore, Terence Winter, Shawn Ryan and many more. It hit shelves today and below we have an exclusive excerpt thanks to Titan Books. Featuring quotes from Whedon, Moore and more, this section of the Showrunners book answers the question “What makes a good showrunner?” Read More »

Helix, the new show from Ron Moore (Battlestar Galactica) has been previewed in a series of atmospheric and ominous teasers. But it’s the main print ad (above), also seen around LA on giant billboards, that has really caught my attention. (Nothing like staring at an exploding head while you’re stuck in traffic.) Now, with just under a week to go before the show premieres, SyFy has put the first fifteen minutes online, so you can preview the beginning of the show’s disastrous situation in the Arctic.
