Moore Dives Into Coast Guard Drama McCulloch
He made a very human drama out of the science fiction cliches behind Battlestar Galactica, and now writer and producer Ron Moore has ditched robots, spaceships and cosmic destinies altogether for his next project… about the Coast Guard.
Moore has sold The McCulloch to NBC with a script deal plus penalty that guarantees a pilot and almost certainly an initial pick-up. The series, produced by Sony Television, will center on the crew of a Coast Guard cutter called, you guessed it, the McCulloch. No cast or directors have been attached to the project yet, but expect a fall 2011 debut if/when the show gets picked up.
