2004 Summer Programming Preview: Drama Series
By The Futon Critic Staff


LOS ANGELES (thefutoncritic.com) -- In recent years the summer months
have evolved from being a dumping ground for dead projects and
unaired episodes (don't worry there's still plenty of that to go
around), as with the success of everything from "Survivor" to "The
O.C." during the period, the networks have begun to take the June to
August stretch much more seriously.

So in an effort to help navigate the increasingly complicated summer
waters, we've compiled a list of everything you can expect to see
during the period: from comedies to dramas to reality series to
original movies and mini-series.

With that in mind, here's a breakdown of all the drama projects set
to launch this summer (all descriptions are taken from each network's
respective press materials where available):

(Please follow the link above for the complete list of summer drama
series. Cast photos at the site.)


JULY 2004


STARGATE SG-1: SEASON EIGHT (Sci Fi Channel)
Premieres: Friday, July 9 (9:00 - 10:00 PM ET/PT)

The Stargate team returns for its eighth season in July to help
launch its spin-off "Stargate Atlantis."

(NOTE: Actually, the July 9th premiere is also a two hour premiere.)


STARGATE ATLANTIS (Sci Fi Channel)
Premieres: Friday, July 16 (9:00 - 11:00 PM ET/PT); Regularly Airs:
Fridays (10:00 - 11:00 PM ET/PT)

A whole new adventure with a new team begins in the successful
Stargate universe. In this spin-off from MGM Worldwide Television, a
secret base left by the originators of the Stargate is found in the
most unlikely of places-on Earth buried within the ruins of the
legendary civilization Atlantis. The implications of this discovery
lead the team to a distant universe, where they find a primitive
human civilization threatened by a sinister new enemy.
