Kevin Murphy has been tapped to serve as showrunner on Caprica, Syfy’s upcoming Battlestar Galactica prequel series. Murphy originally joined the show in October as a co-executive producer to work on the second half of the show’ first-season order. Now in his expanded role, he’ll work alongside executive producer Ron Moore, David Eick and Jane Espenson serving as the day-to-day showrunner, overseeing the writers’ room.
