It's X-Files Meets Eureka... In A Warehouse! But It May Be Good Anyway.

Illustration for article titled Its X-Files Meets Eureka... In A Warehouse! But It May Be Good Anyway.

The Sci Fi Channel is gearing up to produce another 11 hours of its fledgling spooky-warehouse series, Warehouse 13, in addition to the previously shot pilot. Which still begs the question: now that the pilot for the Battlestar Galactica prequel, Caprica, has been in the can for months, when will Sci Fi make a decision on greenlighting a Caprica series? The longer Sci Fi's radio silence on Caprica goes on, the less optimistic we're feeling. But on the plus side, Warehouse sounds intriguing, and it's just hired some seasoned genre veterans to write the show. In Warehouse 13, two Secret Service agents, Pete (Eddie McClintock) and Myka (Joanne Kelly) save the life of the President. As a reward, they're sent to the mysterious Warehouse 13 in South Dakota, where every weird artifact or supernatural item the U.S. government has ever collected is kept. The Warehouse's caretake, Artie (Saul Rubinek) sends Pete and Myka out to collect more weird items, and they also have to help keep the Warehouse under control. (The inevitable X-Files comparisons have already been made.) Actually, it sounds sort of Eureka-esque. Firefly/Battlestar scribe Jane Espenson co-wrote the pilot, which is always a good sign. According to Sci Fi Wire, the show has hired two new executive producers, Jack Kenny (Book Of Daniel) and David Simkins (Blade, Dresden Files). It doesn't sound as though Espenson, who just joined the staff of Joss Whedon's Dollhouse, will stay involved, but you never know. Other new producers include Drew Greenberg (Buffy, Dexter, Smallville, Star Wars: Clone Wars), Dana Baratta (Runaway) and Jericho's Matt Federman and Scaia. And the show has hired some staff writers with a background in comics and animation, including Ben Raab, Bob Goodman and Deric Hughes. Warehouse 13 will premiere in July 2009. As for Caprica? It's anybody's guess. [Sci Fi Wire]
