Missy Posted November 12, 2005 Report Share Posted November 12, 2005 Terminator TV Sarah Connor's coming to the tube As Arnold Schwarzenegger’s killer droid might put it: “Come to TV if you want to live.” Sarah Connor wants to live, so she’s coming to TV. Awful, awful wordplay aside, there’s news that C2 Pictures, who were behind Terminator 3: Rise Of The Machines are bringing The Sarah Connor Chronicles to TV. The show – which will trace the events that occurred between the second and third movies – is being set up at Fox. But Linda Hamilton fans will be disappointed: she’s not expected to return to the role of Sarah Connor. There’s also no word on if the most recent John, Nick Stahl, will be involved either. And given the timescale, it’s unlikely that The Governator himself will turn up for anything more than the odd season-finale ratings-grabbing cameo, if at all. James Middleton, a senior C2 executive who’s producing the series, said it will explore what happened to Sarah Connor after the end of T2 when the character went on the run. "She has the weight of the world on her shoulder and she also has to raise a 14-year-old son who may be the salvation of the world.” And Josh Friedman, who penned the first draft of Steven Spielberg’s War Of The Worlds, is in charge of writing the pilot and running the show. "The last thing I want to do is take a title and exploit it," Friedman said. "The show needs to stand on its own while still being respectful of the franchise." Just don’t expect too many huge, James Cameron-scaled set pieces. This is TV budgeted, after all. "There's going to be a healthy dose of both (action and family drama)," Friedman said, noting that the Terminator mythology "has a lot of big ideas in it that don't cost you a dime to explore."
