JTMacc99 February 5, 2020 Share February 5, 2020 Part of new original content for NBC's Peacock Streaming Service -- A revival of the modern Battlestar Galactica series, it’s being developed by Mr. Robot creator Sam Esmail. The series is set within the sci-fi show’s mythology and explores a new story of humanity’s experiences after a devastating war with the android Cylons. During a January 16 event announcing more details of the Peacock service, Esmail indicated that the series will address the modern political climate and the divisiveness of the current era. According to Deadline, Esmail is a fan of the 2003 iteration of the show and reached out to that series’ creator, Ronald D. Moore, to get his blessing. Esmail has indicated the show won’t be a remake of Moore’s series, but is instead “a new story within the mythology while staying true to the spirit of Battlestar.” 1 Link to comment
