What Is David Eick Adapting Now for NBC?
Battlestar Galactica executive producer David Eick has inked a two-year, seven-figure deal with NBC Universal Media Studios. "My focus now is probably going to be a little less about casting a wide net and a little more on focusing on one, two or maybe three projects a year, maybe writing one myself," Eick tells Variety. Already in the midst of shepherding the BSG prequel Caprica, Eick also has on his drawing board a family adventure pegged as " Little Miss Sunshine meets Thelma and Louise," a project described as "sort of modern-day Hart to Hart," and - this is where it gets interesting, kids - an adaptation of an existing Universal property, the title of which is top-secret until rights are secured. (Eick, need you be reminded, oversaw this past season's Bionic Woman reboot.) What's your take on that last mystery? Is Supertain coming back, better and faster than ever? - MWM Related: " Ronald D.
