A reboot of Blake's 7 could be teleporting its way back on to TV screens.
According to a report by Deadline, the American independent studio Georgeville Television has joined forces with director Martin Campbell to bring back the series that was created by Terry Nation.
The franchise rights have been secured from the rights holder Andrew Sewell and his firm B7 Media, financial backing is coming from MPC, and writer Joe Pokaski is penning the reboot. The project is currently being touted around the American networks.
Blake's 7 originally ran for 52 episodes over four series on BBC1 between 1978 and 1981. In 2008, Sky1 announced that it had commissioned two one-hour scripts for a possible TV series, but two years later it said it had decided not to commission the show.
