Aqui algo de la info:
reports that Tim (Angel
Minear is heading a new take on the property which launched as a
feature film in 1988 before spinning off as a television series on the
then-fledgling network, Fox. Following the single season of the series,Alien Nation
spawned five made for television movies, between 1994 and 1997.
The property is a loose allegory of modern day America set in the near
future after an alien race (the Newcomers) have immigrated to earth. As
such, the stories Alien Nation
told often revolved around racism and bigotry as well as an outsider
view of culture and society and the conflicts of immigrant culture. The
film and series focused on the relationship between Detective Matthew
Sikes, a Los Angeles police officer and his Newcomer counterpart,
George Francisco as they investigated crimes in a world where humans
and Newcomers live side by side.
Fox 21, the alternative production arm of 20th Century Fox TV, will produce the series for Sci Fi.
"It's absolute perfect timing for this type of show," Fox 21’s Chris
Carlisle told the trade. "They're looking for more grounded sci-fi and
close-ended episodes, and at the heart of Alien Nation
, it's a cop movie. It's grounded. And it has a tremendous amount of dramatic possibilities and humor."
According to the trade, the new series will most likely be set in the
Pacific Northwest and will be set roughly 20 years after the first
alien ship landed on earth, when the Newcomer population has reached
"You can take (the original 'Alien Nation') a step forward and really
do a show that encompasses the clash of civilizations, and the idea of
a ghettoized minority," Minear said. "You can touch on racism,
terrorism, assimilation, immigration. And there's room for satire."
