Amazon Studios to Produce Galaxy Quest TV Show

galaxy-quest-tv-showAmazon Studios has signed on to develop a TV series based on “Galaxy Quest.”

The 1999 sci-fi movie starred Tim Allen, Sigourney Weaver and Alan Rickman as actors who once appeared on a “Star Trek”-like TV series — so convincingly, in fact, that the aliens who later abduct these costars don’t know the show is fake.

While it’s unclear if the original cast will be utilized, original director Dean Parisot, co-writer Robert Gordon and executive producers Mark Johnson and Melissa Bernstein are on board.

The deal is also de jour, given how nostalgia is fueling so many other properties. Variety reported in April that Paramount, which produced the “Galaxy Quest” movie and has put increased energy into mining its vault for TV adaptations, had been shopping the project. Paramount is also a co-producer with 20th Century Fox TV on the Fox drama “Minority Report” and producing Fox’s live adaptation of the John Travolta-Olivia Newton-John musical “Grease.”
