80's Sci-Fi Spinoff PHOENIX RISING Flies High With New Artwork And A Trailer
It was last October when news broke of the new series, Phoenix Rising, aimed at spinning off the classic televsion show, Captain Power And The Soldiers Of The Future. Gary Goddard, who co-created the original show which lasted one season before abruptly cancelling after one season despite its popularity and marketing, had been after this process since 2012 and now it appears the show is, in fact, in full, active development.
Deadline reports that Goddard, through his own Goddard Film Group banner is moving the show forward with folks over at the newly-formed Planet X Productions. Judith and Garfield Reeves-Stevens (Star Trek: Entertprise, Primeval: New World) wrote the pilot for the series with Goddard Film Group's own Roger Lay Jr. and Eric Carnagey executive producing, and MastersFX remaining on board to design the visuals for the new show.
