LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - Sci Fi Channel isn't about to let down "Stargate" fans.
The network is set to announce the order of a new series from MGM Television, "Stargate: Universe," that will mark the third entry in Sci Fi's longest-running original series franchise.
The green light comes on the heels of Sci Fi's confirming Thursday that "Stargate: Atlantis" will not receive a sixth-season order. The "Universe" pickup ensures the continuation of the popular "Stargate" franchise, which has been on the air in various incarnations since 1997.
"Universe" -- which will premiere as a two-hour movie in early 2009 and assume a regular hourly slot in the summer -- introduces a team of explorers who find an ancient unmanned ship called the Destiny. Unable to return to Earth, the crew must fend for themselves aboard the ship, which has a preprogrammed mission taking them to the far reaches of the universe.
So that's pretty cool.
How's everyone this morning? I'm riding to the train with Theresa so I get to leave a little later. I was up normal time anyhow and snuck Duncan a fresh bottle in hopes that it will help him sleep a bit longer for Bill. Oh, wait... here's Bill, so obviously that didn't work!
Check out Bill's recent post for goings ons... he pretty much covered life as of late.
I can't think. I need coffee. Have a good day everyone!
