Ron Moore’s 17th Precinct Throws The Book At NBC

Ron Moore, you are a very busy man. The writer and producer responsible for the celebrated Battlestar Galactica reboot is already working on a new BSG series, which comes after the cancellation of his other spinoff, Caprica. He also has a coast guard drama called McCulloch in the works at NBC as well as a possible Wild Wild West reboot in development.

Now, add another show to the list: NBC has officially given a pilot order for 17th Precinct, Moore’s newest series described as “an adult Harry Potter.” Deadline reports that the show is “an ensemble cop drama with supernatural elements,” taking place in the mystical town of Excelsior where science takes a backseat to magic. John Locke would be pleased.

    Its not good when too many projects are being worked on together at the same time… quantity vs quality, you know.. but i suppose after BSG you can have at least 10 bombs in a row and still i’ll give it a go! Know Jesus know LIFE. NO Jesus No LIFE

    Having too many projects is not a problem. Will they all sail? Maybe not, but that’s like telling a great songwriter to not write too many songs for fear that they will all suck. Writer’s learn early on that if you want to be a writer, WRITE!! Let the networks figure out which ones they think will be a hit. Can you imagine if a songwriter worked on one song and released one song at a time? Moore can handle it. Besides, sometimes as a writer, the stuff just flows out of you. You have to get it all out and make decisions on viable content later.

    Moore’s reworking of Larson’s BSG source material wasn’t a resounding success, as it lost 69% of its already average sized viewing audience, then CRAPICA bombed immediately. To this date, Moore hasn’t had anything he’s created himself survive past the pilot.

    Magic and faith aren’t interchangeable. Not sure Locke really applies here…
