BBC America Acquires 'Battlestar Galactica'
The cable network will air all 80 hours of the Ron Moore drama.
BBC America will air all 80 hours of Ron Moore’s Battlestar Galactica, including the two-part miniseries.
Battlestar Galactica will air on the cable network’s “Supernatural Saturday” lineup. The drama ran for four seasons on Syfy and starred Edward James Olmos, Mary McDonnell, Katee Sackhoff, James Callis, Tricia Helfer, Grace Park and Jamie Bamber.
The franchise debuts on BBC America on June 18 at 7 p.m. The show spawned a prequel on Syfy, Caprica, which lasted one season, and another “spinoff,” titled Blood and Chrome, is in the works. Razor and The Plan telepics also aired.
Since Galactica ended its run in 2009, much of the cast has gone on to numerous projects, with Park starring in CBS’ Hawaii Five-0 and McDonnell in TNT’s The Closer. Sackhoff has been cast in the A&E pilot Longmire, while Helfer, Bamber and Callis have joined NBC pilot 17th Precinct from Moore.
