JackFetch Posted April 14, 2008 Report Share Posted April 14, 2008 Fox is star struck with "Virtuality," ordering a two-hour back-door space-themed pilot from BermanBraun and "Battlestar Galactica" alums Ron Moore and Michael Taylor. Universal Media Studios is behind the sci-fi drama, which follows 12 astronauts who are sent on a 10-year journey to find a distant solar system. The explorers pass the time by hooking up to advanced virtual reality modules to explore self-created worlds. But they discover someone has downloaded a computer bug into the system -- and one of them may be the saboteur. Moore, Taylor, Lloyd Braun and Gail Berman are on board to exec produce "Virtuality," which originally came from an idea kicked around by Braun; both Braun and Berman shaped the idea and pitched it to writers around town. Moore and Taylor floated toward the idea. "Virtuality" also comes with a hefty online component: As part of the plot, the space voyage is funded by a reality show that features the trip being streamed back to Earth. That "reality show" will be produced as webisodes, featuring the same cast members. http://www.variety.com/article/VR111798396...mp;cs=1&p=0 Too bad Fox will cancel it before the first season is even finished being filmed.
