The SyFy Portal reports that, unlike NBC’s Bionic Woman, FOX won’t be so quick to bring any familiar faces onto the good ship Phaeton…
Although a lot of attention in the entertainment industry is still focused on “Battlestar Galactica,” showrunner Ronald D. Moore already has moved on to future projects including his “Virtuality” pilot for Fox. But fans expecting Moore to follow the path of executive producer partner David Eick in bringing in familiar faces from his critically acclaimed SciFi Channel series needs to think again.
Sources have told SyFy Portal that “Virtuality” won’t have any cameo appearances from cast members of “Battlestar Galactica,” and in fact will work to distance itself as much as possible from the ragtag fleet series. That includes stunt casting or crossover casting that took place quite liberally in NBC’s failed “Bionic Woman” last season that included appearances by Katee Sackhoff, Aaron Douglas and Mark Sheppard.
“NBC banked on ‘Battlestar Galactica’s’ cult following to help fuel marketing for ‘Bionic Woman,’ and all it did was fall right on its face,” a source told SyFy Portal.
They also report that production on the pilot begins this month. The full story here.
