Katee Sackhoff Creating & Starring In "Rain" SF Series
Katee Sackhoff, known for Battlestar Galactica, is creating and will star in a new science-fiction series titled Rain.
Deadline reports Sackhoff has teamed with Continuum producer Reunion Pictures for the project, which Sackhoff wrote and is executive producing.
The description for Rain reads as: an evolutionary parable that gives us a look into our possible future as a species viewed through the eyes of a soldier named Rain (Sackhoff). It explores how the long-term effects of global warming, the burning of fossil fuels and the scientific manipulation of nature’s balance rot the world and contribute to its decline.
“With Rain, Katee has created a future world and a story that are compelling as both a sweeping vision and a very personal exploration of a civilization in harrowing decline by its own hand,” Reunion Pictures’ Tom Rowe said in a statement. “She has written a great story and we are excited to be working with her.”
Katee Sackhoff currently stars in Longmire, which will be moving to Netflix, and was a part of the controversial Power Rangers fan-film that amassed over 14 million views on YouTube within days of its debut.
“It’s great to be in business with Reunion and Thunderbird,” Sackhoff said.” Their credentials in the genre are outstanding and they share my vision in telling a story that means a lot to me.”
Sackhoff's name has also popped up as a fan-favorite choice to play Marvel's Captain Marvel.
