Via the Sci Fi Wire: Eick Reimagining Bionic:

David Eick, executive producer of SCI FI Channel’s original series Battlestar Galactica, will reinvent another 1970s SF show: The Bionic Woman, which he will executive-produce with film writer Laeta Kalogridis for SCI FI’s parent TV network, NBC, Variety reported.

Hmm. I must admit that when I was a kid, I was a fan of the whole Bionic franchise, so a reimagining could be interesting and I have been quite impressed with BSG.

However, I have to say, this sounds a bit, well, odd:

Eick and fellow executive producer Ronald D. Moore turned SCI FI’s Peabody Award-winning Battlestar into a series vastly different from its predecessor. Eick and Kalogridis are planning a similar “reimagination” of Bionic Woman: Instead of focusing on terrorism and militarism, the new Bionic will explore the role of professional women in contemporary society and how they juggle their various roles.

I mean, where does the whole bionic thing fit into that?
