More ‘Galactica’ on Sky’s horizon

Satcaster buys second batch

LONDON — Satcaster BSkyB’s embattled flagship channel Sky One has bought a second batch of “Battlestar Galactica” episodes and joined the crew as co-producer with the Sci Fi Channel.

Another 20 segs are in the pipeline of the skein that stars Edward James Olmos and Mary McDonnell.

“Galactica” is written and exec produced by Ronald D. Moore; distributor is Universal Intl. Television Distribution.

Sky One has been hit hard by the channels on rival digital platform Freeview and the growing popularity of ITV2, aimed at the same 16- to 34-year-old demo.

Last year BSkyB topper James Murdoch greenlit $40 million in new investment in Sky One, much of which has gone into acquired shows like “Nip/Tuck” and “Deadwood.”
