The Sci Fi Channel says it will air several Battlestar Galactica shorts this fall to tide fans over until Battlestar Galactica: Razor debuts Nov. 24.
The announcement came Sunday as the network unveiled its 2007-2008 development slate of programming at the Television Critics Association press tour in Beverly Hills.
The eight-week, primetime series of mini-sodes are intended to whet the appetites of fans throughout October and November, in anticipation of the premiere of Sci Fi's two-hour event, Battlestar Galactica: Razor.
Razor is a special extended installment that will provide a backdrop to events unfolding in the rest of season four of Galactica.
Filmed as part of the extended episode, the mini-sodes will be included in the unrated Universal Home Video release of Razor and will also be available on SciFi.com after their on-air debuts. The shorts, written by Michael Taylor and directed by Wayne Rose and Felix Alcala, were part of the original script that were cut because of time from the final movie.
