BSG fans take note, the SCI FI channel may be looking into a way to bridge what’s expected to be a long gap between the two halves of the show’s fourth, and final, season. Maureen Ryan of the Chicago Tribune is reporting that NBCU, who produces the show, is looking into producing up to three Battlestar Galactica TV movies (in the vein of the recent TV movie “Razor”):
“Executives are now doing number-crunching for these proposed films, and any deals for these movies are far from done. However, it would make sense to make more “Battlestar” TV movies while the show’s creative team and actors are still all in one place, as it were.”
Ryan also notes that series co-creator/executive creator Ron Moore is currently writing the series finale and that the three films would be made this summer. And lastly, a new set of webisodes, linking the first and second halves of season four, is being prepared.

Considering the last TV movie only drew a 1.2 rating, I’m frankly surprised NBC would be so interesting in doing more. Does the prospect of more of these prequel type TV movies excite you?
