The pilot for Ronald D. Moore’s magical crime drama 17th Precinct, although passed over by NBC, has made its way online. The serious would have reunited Moore with his Battlestar Galactica stars Jamie Bamber, James Callis and Tricia Helfer.
Between Grimm, Once Upon a Time and ABC’s announcement of a series based upon Beauty And The Beast, it seems that fairy tales have replaced superheroes, Lost wannabes and even cheaply made conspiracy theory shows that neatly avoid showing alien invaders as television’s genre of choice. But how long can this latest flame last before burning out altogether?
The actress will play the wife of Jamie Bamber’s crime-scene detective in the NBC police procedural set in a town where science takes a backseat to magic. The cast also includes James Callis, Tricia Helfer, Stockard Channing and Matt Long.
Am I the only one who got the strangest feeling of deja vu when I read that 17th Precinct, the new NBC pilot created by Battlestar Galactica‘s Ron Moore, will star Battlestar Galactica‘s Jamie Bamber and James Callis of… Battlestar Galactica? Is history repeating for anyone else, and if it is, is that a good thing or not?
BSG alum James Callis and Jack & Bobby star Matt Long will play police detectives in the NBC pilot, which is set in a town where magic trumps science.
The Battlestar Galactica star will reunite with creator-producer Ronald D. Moore for the ensemble police drama set in a town where science takes a backseat to the supernatural.
