    I wonder what this means for Sanctuary. I don't see how they can make both, not now Sanctuary has 20 episode seasons...

    this just seems odd cause they just said they're on hiatus from Sanctuary right now and start up tuesday to go through until oct or so....I just dont' know when they'd have time to do much about it unless it's a case of Damian writing and them offering some support and someone else is doing all the heavy lifting.

    Sounds interesting.. Unless they plan to fit the show in after sanctuary has finished for the season.. but now that it has 20 epsidoes it seems like its a tight squeeze... i hope it doesn't take it away from Sanctuary... but with these guys at the hem i'll be watching it...

    I believe when they started Sanctuary they said it would be just the first of many shows an projects that Stage 3 Media would go on to produce. They wanted it to become a big Canadian studio an production house. I suspect it was born from the fact many Stargate writers directors had struggle to get there own ideas an work on to screens.

    Anyway I look forwared to seeing more info on it, but it sounds good an it fit in with what syfy said last year of there aims to bring a space opera back to TV.
    I hope it like Spooks set in space, that would be cool

    hmmm. Not too sure about this myself. Could be good but the synopsis makes it sound like they want to try and create a new Firefly. Nothing wrong with that....but only if it's done well.
    Please do me a huge favour and help me be with the love of my life.

    Why I think that there are many tv shows about Robin Hood for now ? And now this one new ?
    Hm .. I don't know what to think about it. But if it will be as good as Sanctuary, I will check it out. I think that if Amanda will be producer, she can appear there as a quest starring or small role
    I wait for more info

    I do not think it will be about Robin Hood or his merry men, but the star ship will be name Sherwood an that probably as far as the link goes, I doubt the captain will have a bow an arrow, or be called Robin. But tey probably will go around nicking of the rich evil galactic empire or something an giving back to the poor independent colonist.

    I think they should leave Amanda out of it until the second or third season, let it establish it own universe, characters an actors first.

    Not very original is it? Robin Hood in space. Basically it's a re-make of Blakes 7.

    Cool sounds AWESOME. Have always loved the Robin Hood legend. And one set in the future and from this awesome team will be good. Hopefully SPACE will air it too.

    Doesn't sound odd to me. Damian and the others have made mention over the past year of Damian working/writing on another project and them spinning ideas for other projects. Writing wise Damian can work on more than one project but being hands on producing on multiple projects is another story, same goes for AT & MW. Being EP's on the project and letting other people do the day to day hands on work is feasible. Sounds like they are finally building a production company that can run multiple projects.

    Plus it's only in development (cross fingers that it makes it to series for them) and only a fraction of projects ever get to pilot stage and only a fraction of those get picked up.

    I wish them well.

    I hope she doesn't. The woman already does enough work for 2 people and there's not enough time in a single day for her to do all stuff related to Sanctuary, plus all her charity stuff, AND work on a new TV series.

    There isn't actually any mention of it being a series I don't think. It could just be a TV movie.

    Doubtful, they don't use phrases like scripted development when talking about movies.

    I've not seen Sanctuary but I quite like the concept. Reminds me a little of Firefly though, or maybe that's just the term 'ragtag' crew. Meh, probably just me. Either way I'll be watching.

    ...

    Love Firefly.
