Strike to bring down Battlestar Galactica?
With the writers on strike, will this break up the 22-episode final season of Battlestar Galactica? Will it delay the season altogether?
Show creator and WGA member Ronald D. Moore certainly isn't going to be crossing any picket lines, even if he is in that gray area of writer/producer/show-runner:
Some tense times as we head into the strike tomorrow.
Just wanted to take a moment and express my thanks to those of you who've made clear your support of the writers and of our staff in particular. There will still be a Galactica to finish when this is all over, and I'll be back to talk to you more then.
Thanks again and I'll see you on the other side of the Jump.
My hope is that they will run with the 15 or show shows already written. April 2008 is long enough to wait anyway.
The good news is that the strike will almost certainly leave NBC a bit thin on prime-time show programming -- this may prompt NBC to air Galactica which would be way cool for the show itself. Galactica sets a real standard for television. It would be really nice to give it a chance to capture more of the audience I really feel it deserves.
