It’s over for Syfy’s Battlestar Galactica prequel Caprica. The cable network said today that it will be pulling the show off the schedule effective immediately. The final five episodes of the sci-fi saga will air in the first quarter of 2011 and will mark the end of the series’ one-season run. “We appreciate all the support that fans have shown for Caprica and are very proud of the producers, cast, writers and the rest of the amazing team that has been committed to this fine series,” said Mark Stern, Syfy’s EVP of original programming. “Unfortunately, despite its obvious quality, ‘Caprica’ has not been able to build the audience necessary to justify a second season.” After a soft start with the first part of its freshman season at the beginning of the year, Caprica returned with the second half of the season earlier this month to disappointing 889,000 viewers and a 0.4 rating with adults 18-49.

The Walking Dead

Zombies and vampires seem to be taking over the world these days, from books to film to TV. This Halloween, burgeoning cable channel AMC brings us The Walking Dead, a new series about a group of people attempting to survive in the midst of a zombie apocalypse, based on the Eisner-award winning comic book series written by Robert Kirkman.
I was lucky enough to attend a roundtable interview session with some of the show’s producers, director and actors at this year’s NY Comic Con and gained a lot of insight into what direction the series will go in relation to the comic book, what the show is really about and the excitement around the project from all parties involved. It sounds amazing — I know I’ll definitely be watching the 90-minute premiere on October 31st.
