An in-name only sequel- it’s been six years since the last S.W.A.T. movie, Firefight, and you Really don’t have to have seen the previous film – or the 2003 original – to appreciate this, the third film in the S.W.A.T. franchise. Yet another take on the Assault on Precinct 13 story model, S.W.A.T.: Under Siege sees a Swat compound come under fire from an international terrorist who relentlessly and violently pursues a mystery man who was apprehended by Seattle Swat after a raid went horribly wrong.

So why now? Why make another S.W.A.T. film now? Maybe it’s because CBS are planning a new TV iteration of the classic series,

Defying Gravity: Disappointing Ratings; Cancel It or Keep It?

ABC's new outer-space drama debuted on Sunday night. Will Defying Gravity be allowed to complete its mission or, like so many shows before it, be lost in space?

Defying Gravity follows the adventures of eight international astronauts as they fly a spaceship named Antares. On a top-secret mission, their lives are being recorded and telecast on Earth as part of a documentary. Despite the fact that the crewmembers wear libido-suppressing devices, there are plenty of romantic entanglements.

The show features the talents of Andrew Airlie, Christina Cox, Paula Garces, Laura Harris, Peter Howitt, Florentine Lahme, Karen LeBlanc, Ron Livingston, Ty Olsson, Zahf Paroo, Eyal Podell, Maxim Roy, Dylan Taylor, and Malik Yoba.

The sci-fi drama's storyline is strangely similar to the failed pilot for Virtuality that aired a month ago. Defying Gravity is a Canadian series that's co-produced by CTV, Omni Film Productions Limited, and Fox Television Studios. Filming has

ABC Boldly Journeys Into Deep Space With New Series "Defying Gravity"

On the 40th anniversary year of the Apollo 11 lunar landing, ABC is setting out on an outerpace endeavo of their own with the premier of "Defying Gravity" on August 2. The saucy space series follows the zero gravity fortunes of eight international astronauts enlisted on a long and risky mission.

Inspired by a BBC docudrama "Space Odyssey: Voyage to the Planets," the puzzling and often pulse racing mission of the Antares and her crew is spliced with flashbacks from the character's lives back on Earth.

From executive producers James Parriott and Michael Edelstein, the "Defying Gravity" is led by a sizable cast. Ron Livingston ("Office Space," "Sex and the City") stars as the vessel engineer Maddux Donner. Laura Harris ("24") plays on-board geologist Zoe Barnes, one of the many scientific brains working on the ship.

Malik Yoba, Christina Cox, Paula Garces and Zahf Paroo are just a few of talented names

Preview: Defying Gravity

Fox TV Studios, Vancouver’s Omni Film Productions and the Canadian network CTV are teaming up to bring you the show that’s being dubbed “Grey’s Anatomy in space”. Yeah, that’s a weird tagline, right? Perhaps a longer explanation is in order.

Back in 2004 the BBC produced a series called Space Odyssey: Voyage to the Planets, which is the inspiration for Defying Gravity. Space Odyssey was broadcasted as a docudrama about a group of astronauts traveling to different planets. Defying Gravity has a similar premise: “[it's a] sexy, provocative relationship drama set in the very near future against the background of our solar system, in which eight astronauts from five countries (four women and four men) undertake a mysterious six-year international space mission covering eight billion miles. With the eyes of the world upon them – everything they do is monitored, and every emotion they feel, scrutinized – they soon discover that

First look at "Defying Gravity," a "'Grey's Anatomy' in space"

I've been a fan of women in space movies ever since I watched Kate Capshaw and Lea Thompson in Space Camp as a kid. Although I've never gotten into the Star Trek or Star Wars franchises too much, because they rarely give women leadership roles — except for Star Trek: Voyager, which I've seen all seven seasons of — and I've only watched some of the Battlestar Galactica episodes, I enjoyed Jodie Foster's Contact (at least the first half), and Lori and I both loved the 2002 Showtime series Odyssey Five.

So I was excited to hear about the new space drama coming to America (and Canada, Germany, and the U.K.).

Last week, ABC purchased 13 episodes of the new Canadian sci-fi drama Defying Gravity, which has this description, "In the near future, eight astronauts from five countries (four women and four men) undertake a mysterious six-year international space mission covering thirteen billion kilometers.
