BBCAmerica is well known for a love of the science fiction genre (Supernatural Saturdays anyone?). The network is now going to explore that genre a bit more with an upcoming four part docuseries.
BBCAmerica in conjunction with BBCTwo on Wednesday announced My God, It’s Full of Stars: A Journey to the Edge of Science Fiction (working title). The series will explore themes within the sci-fi genre. Each hour will be dedicated to a specific theme of sci-fi such as time travel, space exploration, aliens, and robots/A.I.’s.
In order to explore this theme, BBC will look to the men and women who helped create some of sci-fi’s most beloved properties. It will include filmmakers, writers, actors and graphic artists who will all report their experiences within the genre.
BBCAmerica described the project in the press release as “the story of science fiction told by the men and women who fell to Earth. From H.G. Wells' War of the Worlds to The Terminator, from Doctor Who to Star Wars, this series will guide viewers through a rich, thought-provoking and endlessly exciting genre.”
It sounds like BBCAmerica wants to boldly go where no one has gone before. (Sorry I couldn’t resist.)
