At the Sci Fi Upfronts: Battlestar Finale, New Shows and a New Name

Mar 17, 2009

by Erin Fox

Sci Fi chose their upfront event to screen the much-anticipated finale of their hit series Battlestar Galactica, introduce new shows and formally reveal their new name, SyFy.

Here are some of the highlights of the evening:

... Stargate Universe

Robert Carlyle told TVGuide.com that the network's third installment of the Stargate franchise was much darker than its predecessors, but assured us the show will have the audience hooked immediately. "There are three deaths and a suicide within the first few hours." When we asked if he thought the show's tone was influenced by the success of Battlestar Galactica, he said, "I would hope so. It's such a magnificent piece of work. ... I think [Universe] is very, very well written. ... It's certainly about survival. I think this is the point where (executive producer) Robert Cooper has said, 'We've done a lot of alien stuff, so let's concentrate on people.'"
