Ok, this site has put the first draft scripts for a whole bunch of series that haven’t premiered yet on TV. Four of them are either flat-out Science Fiction, or at least Science Fiction-ey. Check 'em out under the jump!
- “Kings” is a modern-day retelling of the story of King David bar Jessie, set in an alternate history version of America. This sounded fascinating to me when I first heard of it six months ago, and I’m happy to learn that despite the high-concept nature of it, it’s still in production. Here’s the pilot script: http://www.docstoc.com/docs/3236354/Script_Kings_1x01_-_Goliath
- Joss Whedon’s new show, “Dollhouse,” has been picked up by Fox, which means it’ll be cancelled by Fox inside of six weeks. Why wait to the last minute to get pissed off? Just go here to read the pilot script now http://www.docstoc.com/docs/3236356/Script_Dollhouse_1x01_-_Echo
- Now that Battlestar Galactica is ending, leaving the much-hated Sci Fi channel with nothing to abuse their fans with, they’ve decided to start a pointless prequel-series based on a script that’s been sitting on the shelf for three years now. It’s called “Caprica” and you can real the overwhelming “Why should I even botherness” of it all here http://www.docstoc.com/docs/3236362/Script_Caprica_pt1
- Finally, and undoubtedly least impressively, we come to “Boldly Going Nowhere,” the first science-fiction themed Sitcom since…uhm….I’m pretty sure it was “Homeboys in Outer Space” (Remember that one?). And prior to that it was “Mork and Mindy,” and prior to that it was “Quark,” I believe. Ok, so there’s a lot of low cards in that hand, I’m not expecting much out of it, but here it is just the same: http://www.docstoc.com/docs/3236375/Script_Boldly_Going_Nowhere_1x01_-_P...
