Executive producer Jeffrey Bell also promised that star Morena Baccarin, who played Inara Serra in one of my favorite TV shows, Firefly, and now will play the alien leader Anna, will indeed eat a rodent of some kind as in the original 1980’s series.
"We want to find a way to do it," Bell said, but added that if the producers simply duplicated the scene from the original miniseries, "been there, done that." He added that the new show will feature homages to other iconic moments from the original miniseries.
The new series is a re-imagining of Kenneth Johnson’s classic 1980s sci-fi miniseries, about the arrival of alien "visitors" who promise to share advanced technology in exchange for friendship, but turn out to have a darker agenda.
Scott Peters added that the producers were exploring a way to bring some of the original actors into the show, though not necessarily playing the same characters.
I really hope they can pull this off and make it close to being as good as the original series was with great story lines and actors. We shall see.
