Peter Berg talks Virtuality

Today, at NBC’s Television Critics Association presentation, Virtuality director Peter Berg spoke out a little bit about the show (via The Futon Critic).

“I was just a piece of that. I wanted to work with Ron Moore,” director Peter Berg says about his experience on the FOX pilot “Virtuality.” “I’m a big fan of his. Those guys were trying to do something very dense and original and complicated and if they have more time [it] would be completely terrific.”

Berg was in attendance at the TCA summer press tour to promote his new NBC drama “Trauma.” I had the chance to speak with him for a few minutes about the project, which aired on June 26.

“I just read that there’s a European thing, a deal going on in Europe to finance it as a European, co-finance it as a European series,” he said. “I don’t know, you should try to talk to Ron Moore about that but I think that would be fascinating, with the same cast and [everything]. It’s all talk at this point but I think the response to ‘Virtuality,’ the critical response surprised FOX.”

He adds that he’s hopeful it will happen.

Ask an exec

This is the latest from SciFi Wire…

Got a question about SCI FI’s impending change to Syfy or anything else? You can ask Craig Engler, senior vice president and general manager of SCI FI Digital, directly via Twitter.

Engler will answer viewer questions on everything from the upcoming Syfy changeover to current series production and other breaking news.

“Most networks out there are using Twitter strictly for promotional purposes,” Engler said in a statement. “We’re looking at it as a way give fans direct access to a network executive and at the same time provide them with a look at what goes on behind the scenes. We’ll also be talking about our shows both on the air and in production, sharing news and answering questions via a special hashtag #syfyq.”

Direct access, you say? What’s going on behind the scenes, you say? Here’s yet another way to contact someone who would be in a position to make sure that Virtuality doesn’t just die on the vine. Take a few moments to tell Mr. Engler about how much you loved the show.

Virtuality’s overnight numbers

TV by the Numbers has the ratings for last night’s broadcast of Virtuality. The show came in fourth-place for its timeslot with 1.80 million viewers and a 0.5/ 2 rating/share among adults 18-49. Sadly, those are Kings numbers. But, summer on a Friday night, it was half-expected. Luckily, the show has gotten great reviews and some pretty good word of mouth. Stay tuned.
