Katee Sackhoff, star of Battlestar Galactica and most recently the Power/Rangers fan film, is set to not only head up the cast of new show Rain, but also write and executive produce it too.
Rain is set in a future where the effects of global warming, fossil fuels and geo-engineering have destroyed much of the world, as experienced by the soldier Rain (Sackhoff). After playing the hard-ass Starbuck there's no doubt Sackhoff will be up to the role, but her work behind the scenes carries more of a question mark - this will be her first writing credit. If she can balance the big ideas with the personal drama the way the best seasons of BSG could, this could be a show to watch.
It's being produced through Sackhoff's own Fly Free Productions and Reunion Pictures, who are responsible for the Syfy shows Continuum and Olympus.
