Get ready for Galaxy Quest: The TV Series

April 22nd, 2015 by Marc Comments


Galaxy Quest, the movie which saw aliens confusing the stars of a TV show for actual space faring heroes, is set for a TV remake! 

Here’s how the game used to work – if a TV show was successful enough it would be spun off into a big screen adventure.  But now it seems things have taken a 180 as movies such as Psycho, Silence of the Lambs and Scream are hitting the small screens.

The latest in this running order is Galaxy Quest, the 1999 Star Trek spoof starring Sigourney Weaver, Alan Rickman and Tim Allen.   Robert Gordon, who co-wrote the original film, is currently in talks to revive the movie as an ongoing TV series.  How this will work is anyones guess, but colour us intrigued…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
