Sci Fi Channel gives the ok to three new Mini-series
Three miniseries projects all based in fantasy have been greenlighted by Sci Fi and include “Riverworld” from a series of fantasy books by Philip Jose Farmer, a retelling of “Alice in Wonderland”, and “The Phantom” a take on a comic book hero. It seems that “Riverworld” and “The Phantom” will be akin to “Battlestar Galactica” in their programming model. That is they will be miniseries at first, but if they draw a large audience will be turned into a series.
The “Alice” project is being done by Nick Willing who also gave us the Sci Fi channel “Tin Man” a take on “The Wizard of Oz”.
I think this is a great way to see how a show will do and hopefully Sci Fi (Syfy) continues to push the envelope with science fiction and fantasy series even after the name change.
The “Alice” project is slated for the winter and the other two will be coming next year. I was not a huge fan of “Tin Man”, but I still watched it to the end so that must count for something. I am a fan of Philip Jose Farmer though and look forward to that series.
