"Flash Gordon" Gets a Green Light
By Karl Schneider
January 13, 2007
Flash Gordon Comic
The Sci Fi Channel has given the green light to 22 one hour episodes of Flash Gordon
The show will head into production in early 2007 and should debut on the Sci Fi Channel in July of 2007. The series will be produced by Robert Halmi St. and Robert Halmi Jr. who were previously involved in the Sci Fi Channel's Legend of Earthsea
The characters of Ming, Dale Arden and Dr. Hans Zarkov will be brought back for a contemporary retelling of the comic-strip story created in 1934 by Alex Raymond.
KJ's Take: Sweet! I'd rather see this than a film version. Actually, you know what I would really like to see, a big name comic-book hero get his own series on HBO. Yeah, that would be even better, but this is good too.
