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.
