Slice of Trivia: TRIVIA!
SpaceWorks Entertainment Inc. (Canada), and Circles & Lines GmbH (Germany) are pleased to announce that RTL II is acquiring the Ice Planet series. The Canadian-German co-production is a five season scripted sci-fi drama, with 22 episodes per season. The Canadian broadcaster will be CHUM Television, the same folks who helped produce Charlie Jade.
As we reported this story back in September 2006, Ice Planet stars an ensemble cast including Michael Ironside (Splinter Cell, Total Recall) and German star Ralf Bauer (Winter Solstice, In Bed With The Devil).
Interview: Morena Baccarin first wowed the scifi world with her portrayal of Companion Inara Serra in Joss Whedon’s short-lived but fan favorite series, “Firefly”, and the feature film, Serenity. Now, she can be found on SciFi Channel’s long running hit series “Stargate SG-1″, portraying the adult incarnation of Vala’s daughter, Adria.
She joins Michael and Tim for a chat about what it’s like to make an impact in two major scifi series, and more.
The eagerly awaited first movie in the new “Babylon 5: The Lost Tales” series will be out on DVD on July 31, 2007, and is now available for pre-order.
