Caprica series gets the go-ahead

Caprica series gets the go-ahead

So seems that the uber-sexy producers of “First Howl” will have to work around Eric Stoltz’s schedule next year. Either that or they’ll be heading up to Vancouver to shoot his stuff.

The former “Chicago Hope” star is returning to series television with a role in the just greenlit “Caprica” for Sci-Fi. The network had commissioned a two-hour telemovie, but has only just guaranteed it’ll go to series.

Set to air sometime in 2010, the series is a prequel to “Battlestar Galactica” and is set 50 years before the events in “Battlestar” on the home world of Caprica. Stoltz plays Daniel Graystone, a wealthy computer engineer who, after suffering a family tragedy, uses his technological prowess to change the future of Caprica.

Stoltz’s best known for his work in the films “Mask”, “Some Kind of Wonderful”, “Pulp Fiction” and “Killing Zoe”.

He joins Esai Morales (“La Bamba”), Paula Malcomson and Alessandra Toressani (‘’The Sarah Connor Chronicles”, ‘’Arrested Development”) will also feature in the series. No word on which “Battlestar” stars (and, of course, being set in the past only the actors playing cyclones could possibly return) might make appearances in the series.
