    Film director Ridley Scott will bring his talents to the small screen for a new Science Channel series Prophets of Science Fiction, to debut in the second half of 2011.

    The network has greenlit the eight-episode series which will "profile great minds of science fiction" like Isaac Asimov and George Lucas whose work inspired future discoveries in science.

    "Quite simply, Ridley Scott is a titan in the world of science fiction - and the perfect personification of Prophets of Science Fiction," said Debbie Myers, executive vice president and general manager of Science Channel. "Science Channel is thrilled to go on this journey with Ridley beyond imagination into the world of the unknown. Science is sparked by creativity, and the remarkable individuals we cover in this series actually inspired future generations of scientists."

    Prophets is produced by Ridley and Tony Scott, with Bernadette McDaid for Science Channel and Mary Lisio serving as executive producers.

    This is the type of show Syfy should be doing regularly!

    Agreed! From reading the description in your first post, I am actually surprised that it is SyFy that is airing it. :eek:

    Rereads the original post... d'oh!

    In my 'Back to work after being off for a few days' delirium I saw "SyFy" there. :o

    Yep, makes a lot more sense now seeing Science Channel airing it.
