You just can't keep a good Colonial down. Battlestar Galactica, which ended its run in 2009, may be returning as a Web series called "Blood & Chrome." The Chicago Tribune is reporting that the series will focus on the young William "Husker" Adama during the first Cylon War. An older Adama, of course, was played by Edward James Olmos in the TV series. Michael Taylor, co-executive producer of Galactica and its spin-off Caprica, will write the script for the series, which he describes as being "about a young man's initiation into war: both the realities of war as fought by soldiers on the ground (and in Battlestars and Vipers), and the somewhat less real version portrayed in the media." "Blood & Chrome" will run nine or 10 episodes at 10 minutes each, and if it's greenlit into production will be shot on green screens and virtual sets. The Battlestar sets were scanned before being struck when the show ended, and hence are available to be recreated for something like this. To Read More Click Here .
Admiral Adama himself, Edward James Olmos, visited my hometown of Brownsville, TX on Tuesday to promote 'Kings of Brownsville', a documentary about the border town's champion student chess players. Olmos' passion for the film was obvious during a press conference with city officials. Of course, I couldn't resist the urge to ask him a few questions about one of his other passion projects, and one of my favorite shows of all time, 'Battlestar Galactica'. We talked a little about the show's legacy, his initial thoughts on 'Caprica' and what he thinks about that planned 'Battlestar' movie project from director Bryan Singer and producer Glen Larson.

If you're still reeling from Battlestar Galactica's exit from the small screen, you can soon get your hands on a little audible pick-me-up. NBC Universal and La-La Land Records will release Battlestar Galactica: The Plan/Razor, the soundtrack to the two TV movies of the re-imagined series, on Feb. 23. The disc will feature music by series composer Bear McCreary, who currently scores Human Target, Trauma, Eureka and Caprica, the prequel to BSG. "After finishing my four season journey scoring Battlestar Galactica and releasing four remarkable albums with La-La Land Records, I am thrilled to be able to return to this musical universe," McCreary said. "These two scores make any fan's album collection complete." McCreary said he decided to create the new album because there was no room for the scores from Razor and The Plan on the Season 4 soundtrack. Razor premiered in November 2007 and told the story of the Battlestar Pegasus during and after the Cylon attack on the Twelve Colonies. The Plan, directed by series star Edward James Olmos, debuted last month and reexamined the BSG saga from the perspective of the Cylons. Will you pick up the soundtrack? Source Here
