From the team that brought you A Dog’s Breakfast
SCI FI Wire has listed some of the new projects that the Sci Fi Channel has slated for production this year. One of the new programs is Starcrossed, named after the science fiction show depicted in David Hewlett’s independent film A Dog’s Breakfast.
Here’s how the show was described by SCI FI Wire:
Starcrossed, from executive producers Jane Loughman and John G. Lenic, is a half-hour comedy starring David Hewlett (Stargate Atlantis), who will draw from his own experiences for stories that go behind the scenes of a long-running space opera.
In the full Sci Fi Channel press release, the show is described more fully:
In the tradition of The Larry Sanders Show, Starcrossed, a high touch, high-tech comedy, obliterates the fourth wall with its behind-the-scenes antics. Throwing in a bitter dose of Galaxy Quest cynicism for good measure, David Hewlett (Stargate Atlantis) will draw on his own experiences to pen this quirky half-hour about life behind the camera at a long-running sci-fi space soap. Jane Loughman and John G. Lenic are serving as executive producers, with NBC Universal Television Studio on board as the production entity.
