Earlier this year it was revealed that Paramount was shopping a tv series based on the cult classic film Galaxy Quest. Thanks to Entertainment Weekly, we now know that the show has found a home on Amazon.
Not much is known about what direction the show will go in, or if an attempt will be made to bring back members of the original cast. However, the creative team remains the same. The film’s co-writer Robert Gordon will write the pilot. Director Dean Parisot will be back and both will executive produce. Executive producers Mark Johnson and Melissa Bernstein will be involved as well.
Personally, I’m pumped about this show. But replacing the big names in that awesome cast would be difficult. Would the irreplaceable Alan Rickman do this? I doubt it, but I’ll keep my fingers crossed anyway.
