To the various inquiries....
Yes, it will eventually be syndicated, but not for about 2 years.
Joe Dante is not involved due to other commitments, but another well known
feature film director is now attached to direct the pilot movie. (Again, I
can't give specifics on crew or cast until Showtime comes out with that
first...but I can say that there is a rather impressive pedigree of people both
in front of and behind the camera).
It will air in prime-time, on the Showtime network, and we have a heck of a lot
more money to play with than on B5...it's going to be a huge show.
