I don’t really believe this, but thought we should pass it along for your own edification. Andrew Kreisberg, writer of the Fox series Fringe, reportedly has turned in a pilot script based on DC Comics’ Booster Gold character.

Save for Smallville, live action super-hero television series haven’t fared so well.  However, considering the nature of Booster Gold’s adventures, and the fact that Kerisberg has been doing some universe hopping in Fringe, an adaptation might actually work if given the greenlight by SyFy execs.  The biggest concern is that SyFy has a pretty good record of not funding a series the way it could/should be funded and thus, even if Booster Gold does make it to the small screen, I’m giving it less than three seasons.

    Would people want to watch a B-rate hero on a C-rate channel?
    If it was any other channel, maybe, but given the former Sci-Fi channels track record, I’ll pass.

    I know that this will not be good because of SYFY’s track record BUT it could be so bad that it is worth watching like most of the movies that SYFY makes.

    After what they did to Flash Gordon a few years back, this fills me with horror!
