Back in June, we reported that the popular sci-fi series “Torchwood” would make its return to the small screen in 2011. It was picked up by the Starz cable network from the BBC, who will still co-produce future episodes. According to Zap2it, season 4 of the British series will be infused with some top notch American writing talents. We’re talking people from “Buffy the Vampire Slayer,” “House,” Breaking Bad, “Battlestar Gallactica,” and “The X-Files” — “The X-Files”!!
“Torchwood” will welcome three new writers to their camp including Doris Egan, Jane Espenson, and John Shiban. Between them they’ve had a part in some of the most groundbreaking shows on television. They’ll work alongside “Torchwood” creator Russell T. Davies and John Day to make sure that the new season will be up to code because they have a lot riding on it.
We don’t know if you’re aware but only two of the series’ regulars from the previous seasons are returning to the show, John Barrowman and Eve Myles. The producers don’t want the show to jump the shark just because it jumped networks. So they’ve lined up an impressive creative team to make it work. The show will also be filmed in North America and has been given a bigger budget, therefore the possibilities are endless.
What do you think of the latest additions to the Torchwood writing team?
