Blakes 7 on the way back
Blakes 7 was originally created by Terry It was a pretty big hit right from the off, and for a show that commanded such strong ratings, it went into some brave and unexpected places for a TV sci-fi series, like having the main character framed as a child molester for a start. Right from the off Blakes 7 was a frightening view of the future, an anti Star Trek if you like.
Writer Joe Pokaski (Heroes, CSI) will pen the re-imagining of the original series created by Terry Nation, a prolific UK TV writer who also created the Daleks for the classic BBC series Doctor Who. Campbell is attached to direct the Blake’s 7 reboot, which is being shopped to U.S. networks.
