The man behind the re-imagining of Glen A. Larson’s Battlestar Galactica, Ronald D. Moore has signed a deal with NBC for a new drama series where magic is the norm. It’s been described as an adult Harry Potter. Apparently the pilot and series penalties totaled around $2 million.

Moore has an excellent track record with the shows he’s worked on. Battlestar Galactica is still viewed as one of the top series on television, and Moore also had a hand in HBO’s Carnivale, which is highly regarded. It’ll be exciting to see how his new project pans out.
