Caprica To Debut On DVD


Caprica, the Battlestar Galactica spin-off/prequel will debut on DVD in April, eight months before it is due to start airing in the US on the Sci Fi Channel.

A limited edition, extended, uncut version of the two-hour pilot will go on sale in the US on April 21.  The DVD will also include bonus features that take viewers behind the scenes of the show’s creation.

Caprica is set 50 years before the events of Battlestar Galactica. It’s billed as more of a family drama and will primarily tell the story of the creation of the Cylons, as seen through the eyes of two men thrown together through a shared tragedy – wealthy industrialist Daniel Graystone (Eric Stoltz) and Joseph Adama (Esai Morales), father of Battlestar Galactica’s commander William Adama.

Filming begins on the remaining 18 episodes of the show’s first season during the summer. It is expected to air early next year. Battlestar Galactica is currently airing the final batch of episodes of its fourth and final season.
