‘Galaxy Quest’ TV Series in the Works

http://variety.com/2015/tv/news/galaxy-quest-tv-series-paramount-adaptation-1201476536/

Paramount Television is shopping a TV spin on the 1999 comedy “Galaxy Quest,” a spoof of the sci-fi TV show that starred Tim Allen and Sigourney Weaver.

Robert Gordon, who co-wrote the DreamWorks feature with David Howard, is in negotiations to work on the TV adaptation, as are original director Dean Parisot and executive producers Mark Johnson and Melissa Bernstein. The movie’s conceit — revolving around the cast of a beloved 1970s sci-fi TV series who are inadvertently reunited for a real space trek to help an alien race — seems tailor-made for a series rendition.

In the years since “Quest” was released, Parisot has become a busy television helmer, while Johnson and Bernstein have scaled the heights with “Breaking Bad,” “Rectify” and “Better Call Saul,” among other shows.

Interesting. Would it be completely based in space? Would it be mostly a comedy?

Such a classic movie! I hope they don't tarnish it with this show and it turns out to be a hit.
