Old news, at least a couple of weeks old. Posted Image
It was announced at the NBC upfronts about 3 weeks ago, it will air on Wednesday nights at 9/8c this fall.

It's produced by Battlestar Galactica producer David Eick.

Also, if you're interested in the rest of the new fall shows and schedules, check out this thread:

Wow, in the most positive sense of the word.

As a Battlestar Galactica fan, I am thrilled to see one of the producers of Galactica is behind this. That he casts some of his friends in this is the icing on the cake.

Without seeing much more than a 30 second tease, this is the new show I am most looking forward to. Add this to my list of NBC shows.

It's a little weird seeing the girl from "Two guys, a girl, and a pizza place" as the Bionic Woman. I guess those hot-oven incidents can be quite dangerous.

But the previews are intriguing.

You mean Traylor Howard? She's on "Monk" these days. Michelle Ryan was on an UK soap for quite a while, though.

I still think it's interesting that the last Bionic Woman on TV was Sandra Bulloch.

I saw a shorter preview a little while back and it looked interesting, and this longer preview makes it look even more interesting.

Cool to see Starbuck as the "first bionic woman". I wonder if they'll eventually work an astronaut named Steve Austin into the story. That would be fun.

I'll definitely be checking this out.

I do. I was mistaken. Posted Image The preview still looks interesting.

Looks good but I'll wait and see. I remember foundly the original Bionic Woman TV series and the 3 6 Million Dollar Man & Bionic Woman TV movies. They were great for thier time and even wraped everything up in the movies with the wedding.

The REAL bad part is their casting of her "teen" sister. She looks much older than the bionic woman actress and I thought was pathetic from the clips. I also don't think the show needs to deal with the whole teenage angst thing like so many kid shows. Make it hard hitting for adult viewers and dump the teen crap. Just look at how much better shows like 24 were when they got rid of the idiot teen type character of his daughter.

The kid sister is "Anne" from "Arrested Development", and also a bit annoying from her stint on "Thief" as the daughter that Andre Braugher's character got saddled with in the short mini-series.

i recently saw a screener of this and it is not going to make it on network t.v. period. they use a few of the contemporary battlestar galactica cast in the pilot.

if bsg couldn't make it this definitely is not going to make it on network t.v. corny special effects. thin acting skills. wtf moments abound. sci-fi channel material for sure. national network material, i think not.



if the screener i saw hit airwaves it will be cancelled as fast as drive was. perhaps they are still working on it but what i saw seemed like a finished product.

New to this thread and new to the fact that they are remaking this. I am surprised, didn't know about it. Saw the NBC website and preview there.

Looks like a reimaging again. Where's Oscar Goldman? I guess they have a new organization that rebuilt her.

I don't watch NBC and I haven't seen Heros, which I plan to when the DVD's come out. This looks like NBC is pinning it's hopes towards some more Sci-fi genre material. Does seem odd without Steve Austin.

This is one of the new series I'm most looking forward to in the fall. I liked what I saw in the previews, especially the way they seem to be using the overall premise as a means through which to explore a young woman coming of age in today's more chaotic world, sort of a Buffy the Vampire Slayer metaphor with the protagonist a few years older.

And Katee Sackoff was looking deliciously psychotic in the scenes they show of her.

Also, Heroes season 2 looks to be an improvement on one; shorter story arcs, and with the spinoff Origins series being used for fill ins, no or very few reruns.

But hey, I'm a Sci-Fi and comic book nerd, so shows like this get the benefit of the doubt with me.

Not to derail this thread too much, but in addition to the Bionic Woman and second season of Heroes (not to mention Medium, which returns in January) NBC also has an action/comedy called Chuck and time travel drama Journeyman bookending Heroes on Monday nights this fall, making for a very sci/fi filled schedule for a broadcast network.

Apparently...

The deaf sister is out and replaced by a younger-looking sister without the hearing problems.

There's meant to be some sexual tension between the two bionic womans on the show.

The show looks interesting but apart from Michelle Ryan and Miguel Ferrer as boss, the casting seems uninspired, especially Chris Bowers (a Juan-Carlos Ferrero look-a-like) as the doc/love-interest.
