HDFilms Launching "Space: 2099"

According to reports, the classic 1970's sci fi TV series "Space: 1999", created by Gerry and Sylvia Anderson will be updated as a new series under the more 'contemporary' title of "Space: 2099", from HDFilms ("V").

"Science fiction is a powerful format capable of visualizing the human condition in thought-provoking ways," said Jace Hall, president of HDFilms, who will executive produce the new show with ITV Studios International.

The original British-produced TV series ran from 1975 to 1977.

In the opening episode, nuclear waste from Earth stored on the Moon's far side explodes in a catastrophic accident, September 13, 1999, knocking the Moon out of orbit and sending it and the 311 inhabitants of 'Moonbase Alpha' hurtling into space.
