Paramount Adapting “Galaxy Quest” for TV

(via Deadline)

If this actually goes to series, they’ll be going head-to-head with Other Space.

It’s been over 15 years since Galaxy Quest was on the big screen and now Paramount is picking it as the latest TV show to be adapted/revived from something that happened ten years ago and more. The director, writer, and producer of the movie will be involved.

High concept sci-fi sitcoms are on the rise with the success of Last Man on Earth as well as the aforementioned Other Space. 

Hopefully, they’ll handle the adaptation well and get as much of the cast including Sigourney Weaver, Sam Rockwell, and Tony Shaloub on board as they can.
