TCA: “Farscape” returns as Web series

There was also good news for “Farscape” fans out of the Sci Fi Channel TCA sesh on Sunday. The cult-fave 1999-2003 skein, about an average-Joe astronaut’s struggles when he gets flung into a distant galaxy in the thick of a nasty war, will be revived as a Web skein for the SciFi Pulse broadband net. Sci Fi has ordered up 10 installments, to be exec produced by Brian Henson and Robert Halmi Jr. for the Jim Henson Co. Sci Fi also unveiled two new info- and docu series for SciFi Pulse: “Sci Fi Tech,” an extension of its blog offering reviews and demos of the latest gizmos and gadgets; and “Invent This!,” described as a lighthearted look at the world’s weirdest inventions and the people who dreamed them up. Both “Tech” and “Invent This!” hail from NBC Universal’s newly formed news, reality and infotainment production shingle Peacock Prods., as Variety’s Michael Learmonth reported last week.
