The Sci Fi Channel has announced a Battlestar Galactica spin-off show. It's called Caprica and it's a prequel to the regular series. It takes place about 50 years before the regular show during the time when the Twelve Colonies are at peace and just developing the first Cylon.
They're taking kind of a Dallas/Dynasty approach to the show and focusing on two families: the Adamas and the Graystones. If we've heard of the Graystones before, I don't remember it, but I'm assuming that they'll be rivals of the Adamas. Anyway, Sci Fi is promising "corporate intrigue, techno-action, and sexual politics."
Current Galactica executive producers Ronald D. Moore and David Eick are working on Caprica along with Remi (24) Aubuchon.
