More Battlestar Galactica TV movies may be on the way

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.

Read all of Ryan’s story here.

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?

    “Does the prospect of more of these prequel type TV movies excite you?”

    Not at all. I really don’t understand the business decision here. The numbers I saw for “The Road Less Traveled” was a (coverage) 1.3 (source SciFi wire) which was bested by a rerun of “Ghost Hunters” at a 1.7. And the overnight demo numbers for “Faith” were a 0.7/2 which is a 0.2 drop (source MediaWeek). On this alone, I’m surprised they would pursue this franchise anymore. Plus, “Razor” DVD was only in the top 30 DVD sales for one week (source http://the-numbers.com/), so there’s not huge profits there either, unless I’m missing something. I just don’t get it.

    On the story side, they have been setting up season 4 for a year now as “The End” and now there’s more to tell? Does this mean all of the story threads AREN’T going to get addressed after all even through they were upgraded from 13 episodes to 22 to do exactly that? So “All MAY NOT be revealed” after all? That’s a depressing thought.

    Not sure if I’ll watch or not at this point, to tell the truth. I wasn’t interested in Cain so I blew off the “Razor” movie (plus I wasn’t home because of Thanksgiving). Maybe if “Zarek” is involved some how, that might get my attention. Overall, I guess I’m really, really surprised more than anything else.
