So it worked once and it developed a devoted following, despite how Fox treated it, so it looks like Fox is trying it again.

Scott Rosenbaum (Producer: Chuck, The Shield) is stepping outside the boundaries he’s made for himself with NBC’s Chuck and is taking a stab at a yet-to-be-named western with a science fiction twist.

Rosenbaum will be producing the show with Warner Bros. TV and Wonderland Sound and Vision studios (McG’s company), the latter of which has a fairly decent list of shows to their credits.  That’s if you count Chuck, Human Target and Supernatural as decent shows. They also produce The OC, but I couldn’t put that in the same sentence with the phrase “decent shows.” Just ain’t our cup of tea here at Screen Rant.

I said sadly, because as much as I am loyal to the memory of Joss Whedon’s Firefly (a great sci-fi/western TV show), I am going to be giving Rosenbaum’s show a look-see once it gets going.

At the moment, we have no other details on the show.  I hope they best tread very carefully on ground already trodden, because you know for a fact that the fan base of Joss Whedon and other editorial entertainment writers will be comparing it to Firefly.  Not that Firefly has the sole market on sci-fi westerns, but it’s the most popular template for comparison.

  1. I misread that!
    I thought it said Chuck turning into a Scifi Western!

  2. In an alternate universe where Joss Whedon took over… sure!!

  3. I wish them luck, but I don’t think anyone will ever capture what Firefly had. The orginal cast played off one another in a way seldom seen, and as a die hard fan like many others I know I’m going to be finding fault.

    Fox had there chance and they blew it! Big Time!

    Firefly is not only the most popular template for comparison. It’s the Holy Grail! Sorry Mr.Rosenbaum.

  4. are they going to call it Firefly The Next Generation LOL
