Trailer for new sci-fi series OUTCASTS. Here's how the BBC describes this show:

Settled in the town of Forthaven on Carpathia, the Outcasts are passionate about their jobs, confident of their ideals and optimistic about the future. They work hard to preserve what they've built on this planet they now call home, having embraced all the challenges that come with forging a new beginning.

They are led by President Tate and his core team of Stella, Cass and Fleur – they took charge and settled here first alongside Expeditionaries Mitchell and Jack.

They are a diverse group of individuals who left their old lives behind in extraordinary circumstances; promised a second chance at life they created a society, far away from their home, friends, family... and their pasts.

The planet offers the possibility for both corruption and redemption; while they try to avoid the mistakes made on Earth, inevitably our heroes cannot escape the human pitfalls of love, greed, lust, loss, and a longing for those they've left behind.

As they continue to work and live together they come to realise this is no ordinary planet... is there a bigger purpose at work? Mystery lurks around them and threatens to risk the fragile peace of Forthaven.

Cast includes Liam Cunningham, Hermione Norris, Amy Manson, Daniel Mays, Jamie Bamber, Ashley Walters, Eric Mabius and Michael Legge.

‘Fairly Legal’: Interview with Sarah Shahi

by Lynn DeVries on January 13, 2011

It was fun to get to take part in a conference call interview with the star of the new USA Network series Fairly Legal. Sarah Shahi answered some questions about the new show, which premieres on January 20th at 10/9c. Here’s how the conversation went...


... Q: Can you talk about working with Richard Dean Anderson this season?

S. Shahi: Richard is interesting. He’s very quiet, gets very excited when he talks about his daughter, but other than that he and I didn’t really engage too much with each other. There was a lot of mystery surrounding our relationship with one another on the show, and I think we kind of kept that for ourselves off screen as well just because it helped on screen.

... Q: What are some of the guest stars we can expect to see this season?

S. Shahi: Well we have Richard Dean Anderson who’s probably the most well-known guest star. Dean Norris from Breaking Bad was another one who’s amazing. Those are kind of the heavy hitters. The rest of them are wonderful actors, but not necessarily any names.

... Pioneers of Television

8/7c PBS

It's hard to believe, but Irwin Allen's silly Lost in Space did better in the ratings than Gene Roddenberry's Star Trek. This Season 2 premiere of the nostalgia-fest focuses on sci-fi pioneers, including those two series and what is arguably the genre's all-time best: Rod Serling's Twilight Zone. Along the way, viewers learn a bounty of trivia, including this "fascinating" fact: Martin Landau was offered the part of Spock before Leonard Nimoy.
