Executive producer Ron Moore has moved on from the Battlestar Galactica mythos to create the series 17th Precinct. The premise deals with supernatural elements and magic in a fictional town known as Excelsior.
Following Moore from Battlestar to 17th Precinct are actors Jamie Bamber (Lee Adama) and James Callis (Gaius Baltar) as homicide detectives; along with Tricia Helfer (Number Six) as a necromancer named Morgana.
Ron Moore’s re-imagining of Battlestar Galactica is critically acclaimed with excellent actors who expressed the emotional weight of the premise. It’s exciting that Moore is taking on an original project and bringing actors he’s worked with in the past onboard. And I was a huge fan of James Callis’ Gaius Baltar — I can’t wait to see him in his new role.
The pilot episode of 17th Precinct will air on NBC.
