Battlestar Boss Reinvents Bionic Woman
Battlestar Galactica exec producer David Eick is teaming with scribe Laeta Kalogridis ( Birds of Prey, Alexander) on a new version of The Bionic Woman, the Six Million Dollar Man spin-off that showed the world what Lindsay Wagner's ear looks like way up close. "It's a complete reconceptualization," Eick tells Variety. "We're using the title as a starting point, and that's all." Just as Eick reinvented that other '70s show, BSG, as a compelling poli-sci discourse, his new Woman aspires to use "the idea of artificial technology as a metaphor for what contemporary women sometimes feel is necessary to do everything that needs to be done." But hopefully, there will probably be some wicked-cool steel-bar twisting, too. In related news: BSG season premiere ratings can be found here.
