I heard that the producer Jerry Bruckheimer is creating an SF series that has, at its heart, the use of real science. (Allegedly the show is not space opera.) Supposedly this new series is about the terraforming of a planet (I don't think it's Mars), and supposedly the use of science in this series is going to be like the use of science in shows like "CSI" and "ER."

If Bruckheimer is creating such a show, I hope that it's genuine SF and not space opera, like "Star Wars" and what have you. (I like space opera, mind you, but I also like true hard SF, where the science must be as accurate and as real as possible--at least as far as we know science at this time--and where the storylines might be something that Heinlein or Sturgeon dreamed up.)

If anyone has heard anything about this series or knows anything about it, please let me know.

Thanks.

IMDB lists about 15 titles in production bt JB, but you need IMDB pro to access the info.

Some have titles that strongly indicate SF like Alien Legion and World War Robot, but I think those are planned as films.

Thanks.

I've looked on the Web, of course, but haven't found anything of substance; this project supposedly is "under wraps" (or underground). Some PAs supposedly leaked something. They, the PAs, might be blowing smoke up their you-know-whats.

Anyone else heard anything?
