One of Apple's upcoming television shows is an unnamed sci-fi series from Battlestar Galactica developer Ronald D. Moore, which is currently in the casting stages.

According to Variety, several actors and actresses have inked deals to star in the show, which has been described as a series that will explore what would have happened had the global space race never ended.

I know content seems like a fun game, but it isn’t Apple. With the rise of Youtubers and the like are so many niche prosumer tools this company could dedicate their expertise to. On that point plz give your FCPX team a raise.

This company builds tools - ffs even a 4 inch phone with X style screen, price it right and it would explode. How is that not glaringly obvious to Cook and co?

Apple - stop pumping cash into white-guy-executive-committee-decided-broadly-appealing sci-fi crap.
