It's not like anyone could get away with pulling off a really awesome re-make of some high end special effects/digital animation sci-fi program like Battlestar Galactica and be successful at making money. They need to wait 3-4 years for the price to come down."The TV series is on hold, but that has nothing to do with the Czech Republic; it has to do with [the episodes being] so ambitious," he added. "We have 50 hours of third-draft scripts, but the problem we have is there is a lot of digital animation; we don't have the technology yet to be able to do them at a price that is safe for television. Since we would be financing them, it would be suicide for us to do this [now]. So we are going to wait three or four years."
Yeah, one hour TV dramas don't sell right now, they need to wait 5 years 'til the whole reality tv fad blows over."Network television and cable television as we know it are completely imploding, so we're not really sure that in five years' time we can release a dramatic one-hour episode because it is all reality TV now."
So perhaps one day never we will see something. Lucas is afraid, after the Christmas Special he should be.
Making good televsion ain't like making movies boy, without good writers you could end up cancelled in mid season or left with a season cliff hanger and that would end your fandom real quick!
Just admit you guys couldn't get the people from BSG or LOST and now it ain't gonna happen.
