NBC’s Peacock streaming service has found a showrunner for its upcoming re-reboot of Battlestar Galactica.
Assassin’s Creed screenwriter Michael Leslie has signed on to reboot series.
“I am beyond excited to be taking on this iconic and inspirational show. As a lifelong devotee, I know that the possibilities of Battlestar Galactica’s world are infinite and that each iteration has raised the bar for epic and intelligent sci-fi storytelling,” stated Leslie. “The teams at Esmail Corp, UCP and Peacock are second to none, and I already know that we are going to honour Glen A Larson and Ronald D Moore’s landmark series and break new boundaries with our own vision. It’s a dream come true – one I just can’t wait to share with fans, new and old alike. So say we all.”
No premiere date for the reboot has been announced.
