    Default Warehouse 13 HG Wells spinoff.

    HG Wells from Warehouse 13 is probably getting her own spinoff show.
    I was reading Blastr this morning and it looks like they are going to do a spinoff based on HG Wells.

    While it is still in the early stages and thus subject to change, the idea is to put Wells in a 1890s steampunk environment. Despite Warehouse 12's efforts to recruit her, she would remain a free agent who uses her knowledge of contemporary science to solve murders and other mysteries.
    In this incarnation, she would enlist the help of a mechanical engineer and utilize her relationship with the police commissioner to solve what appear to be unsolvable cases. Both the skills and style she employs will become the framework for the well-known stories of H.G. Wells, as written by her brother.
    Sounds like a decent concept. Hopefully it doesnt take too long to air.

    Wow, this sounds awesome! Kind of like a Warehouse 12 show (in a way). No details on possible release? Maybe Summer 2012? Are they planning on using the same actress? She wouldn't be my choice for the job.

    In the real world yes but in W13 cannon Wells is female and as a spinoff it would have to follow W13 cannon

    Changing the gender of a historical person for uber-kewl sake is just... mind numbing. Why not maintain historical accuracy?

    Historical accuracy wasn't really the point. And they didn't ignore the fact that everyone thought H.G. was a man, they just made into a cover-up. Y'know, having a man pretend to be H.G. Wells so that the books would sell better than if they were written by a woman.

    Well considering how the mythology behind WH13 works, it makes perfect sense. Think about Stargate. They changed the builders of the Pyramids completely, adopted Intelligent Design for the origin of Humans (The Ancients made us) and replaced mythical gods with Aliens pretending to be gods.

    People on Earth still think Humans came from Ape like creatures on Earth, Archeologists still insist that the pyramids were made by some Pharaoh. And no one says that the gods are actually aliens playing God. Same thing for WH13...sort off.
