Virtuality trailer

Virtuality cast

Virtuality is the new show on Fox from the creator of Battlestar Galactica, Ronald D Moore. It stars Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (aka “that bloke from New Amsterdam“) as the captain of a spaceship whose crew are immersed in virtual reality environments to keep them entertained (presumably some of them are the cast of the US version of Life on Mars). However, something goes wrong…

I said show, but at the moment it’s only a TV movie, hoping to get enough ratings to warrant a series (gosh, that’s a blast from the past, isn’t it?). Chances are that its time slot – June 26th at 8/7c – mean that it won’t get anything near enough to do that. But if enough of the shows planned for the Fall by Fox turn out to be rubbish, it might get a late pick-up, assuming the options don’t run out.

All the same, here’s a trailer:
