    I'm not certian, Vyce, but I think they made the pilot for the vamp series and it didn't go anywhere. If it was the one I'm thinking of, it seemed to be about a band of bounty-hunter types who had a 'tame' vamp (female, natch) whom they used as a judas goat. I didn't watch enough of it to say it was bad but it definitely wasn't to my taste.

    I'm down for a tv series about intergalactic vampires.

    I'm not even joking.

    Hey ZHD, I'll have to tell my friend, the diehard JMS mark, about this. He'll be thoroughly disgusted.

    Polaris was once with the Sci-Fi channel for development but was passed on in favor of a show about intergalactic vampires. I don't know if that was the show that he memtioned writing the entire first season of or not. His posts about Polaris can be found here.

    There might be other series he's shopping around in addition to Borrowed Lives which has been purchased by Touchstone.

    Hmmm didn't JMS mention that he'll probably start a Sci-Fi show called Polaris in the end of 2006? But he needs to write the whole first season before they'll begin the shooting. It's been a while since I read this - don't know if is really happening...

    Sorry, I meant to say PTEN Network. Rest of the message stands. Initially speaking

    Anything from JMS is worth waiting for and watching. Hopefully the network execs will keep out and let him do his thing

    We can only hope that the numbers will be better for JMS' new show

    Bear in mind that Warners and the then-PEN Network wanted to wait and see what sort of viewing figures they got from 'The Gathering' before they did anything. I think they were pretty happy with the way it turned out, but if the numbers were exceptionally low, they may well have had second thoughts about going forward with a series.

    Unfortunately, that's true. At this point, if I understand how it goes, they're still working on getting somebody to commission a pilot. Then they need to make the pilot-which may or may not be televised. Then the series has to be commissioned and then they have to make the show then they need to put it on the schedule.

    It's kind of amazing that anything ever gets on the air! Jan
    Very true indeed If I remember correctly, it took them something about half a year to move from "The Gathering" to "Midnight on the Firing Line" And that was preceded by almost a five year-struggle to bring "The Gathering" to screen...

    But I have to admit that G'Kar and Londo's clothes improved a great deal between the pilot and the first ep

    If the pilot's not made yet (can't read the article from here), then unless it's fasttracked, it won't make midseason this year. Earliest we'll see it is September '07. Damn.

    Actually, I'm eager to see the new show But we'll have to wait for quite a long time, as far as I understand...

    Maybe I'm just imagining things... Anyway, I don't think there is any room on TV for another "murder mystery" series, with all this CSI stuff around. If the show was set in a some kind of "film noir / Blade Runner" universe, then it would possibly have a chance to survive.
