Moore and Eick to Receive Script in 2 weeks

Now Playing Magazine has even more Caprica-related info from executive producers Ron Moore and David Eick. The two gentlemen were attending a screening at the Museum of Television and Radio in New York.

From Ron Moore:

"The prequel series called Caprica takes place about 50 years before the events of Battlestar Galactica, and for those of you who really know the mythology, it's takes place even before the original Cylon War," explained Moore. "It's a family drama and it's about the creation of the first Cylons and how that took place and why they were created and who were the people behind it. And it takes place on Caprica, on that world."

From David Eick:

"And it's all the corporations involved in struggling how to find the best way for this artificial intelligence to realize itself," says Eick. "And so you have a lot of conflict between the corporate barons and the scientists and the dreamers, who are all looking upon this thing really as a great breakthrough. There was a great piece in the LA Times yesterday about nanotechnology, and how terrifying it really is because we known so little about it and we're already starting to use it. And so it sort of follows that principle of stumbling upon some technological advance, some epiphany that you start putting to use even before you quite understand what it is or what it might do."

You can read the article right here. Most importantly it says that Remi Aubuchon will be submitting the Caprica script in about 2 weeks. Things seem to be progressing nicely!
