I'm in the midst of forming my thoughts on why science fiction shows doesn't work on television despite a few hits like Star Trek and the X-Files. Any other shows have had to struggle with the idio network executives who simply don't get it or are too chicken to take risks. Meanwhile, I came across this Kickstarter project formed by former Star Trek writers. Along with an A-list of designers, music writers, and producers, they're going to produce Star Wolf.
And in reading the synopsis of the story, the series producer and writer, David Gerrold and D.C. Fontana were right. TV execs would never have picked this up. and even if someone were to do it, like SyFy, there will be too much interference from the network and its parent company.
Take Stargate series, SG-1, Atlantis, and Universe. Those shows were profitable with dedicated followings but it was still not enough for the network.
Anyway, I don't know if I would like this series or not but it's science fiction and from the folks who gave us years of awesome trekness. So, why not.
Back them now!!! And let's enter a new era of online video entertainment. Screw the networks!!!
