BLAKE'S 7 Fly Again!!

Merrick here...
Inspired by the successful revivals of DOCTOR WHO and BATTLESTAR GALACTICA (and because there are, evidently, no new concepts to be found in the tens-of-thousands of pitches conducted every year), Sky One is dusting off BLAKE'S 7 for a relaunch. The original series (created by Terry Nation) ran on BBC for four seasons between 1978 and 1981.
Sky has commissioned two 60-minute scripts with the intention of creating a new sci-fi series of the hugely popular show, which followed the intergalactic tales of a small band of rebel fighters struggling to evade the dark forces of the Federation.
...says THIS ARTICLE in Hollywood Reporter. Nation passed away in the late 90s - this iteration will be spearheaded by Andrew mark Sewell (learn more about him HERE).
