As Apple continues its march into original programming, it has added yet another show to its slate, this time coming from the reimagined Battlestar Galactica creator Ronald D. Moore. Per Deadline, the untitled series will be a drama imagining what the world might look like if the global space race had never ended.
Moore has created and written the series along with Fargo executive producers Matt Wolpert and Ben Nedivi. Moore, Wolpert and Nedivi will executive produce the series with Moore’s Tall Ships Productions Maril Davis.
Moore is teaming up again with Sony Pictures Television for the series, specifically with former Sony TV presidents Jamie Erlicht & Zack Van Amburg. The pair left Sony for Apple earlier this year and have worked with Moore on several shows, such as Moore’s Outlander and Philip K. Dick’s Electric Dreams. This also marks Apple’s third original series order, after giving two season to the untitled Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon morning show comedy and Steven Spielberg and Bryan Fuller’s reimagining of Amazing Stories.
Moore is well known for his work in science fiction, having worked on many of the Star Trek series, specifically The Next Generation and Deep Space Nine. His reboot of Battlestar Galactica has been lauded by critics and fans alike, being considered one of the best television series ever produced. He is currently still showrunning Outlander for Starz.
