According to Deadline, Sackhoff will not only executive produce the show but is both its creator and head writer.
“Rain” gives the viewer a first person accounting of the future evolutionary changes in the human race and its environment from the vantage point of a soldier named Rain. Like many sci-fi series from the past, a’ la “Star Trek,” the series will tackle important life changing and planet altering topics. Those will include human activity that affects the planet such as climate change, management of planetary resources by the burning of fossil fuels, fracking, strip mining, deforestation, over farming, and other things that may well lead Earth, or at least its inhabitants, into global decline and ultimate failure.
Reunion Pictures and Sackhoff’s own company, Fly Free Productions are currently in full swing getting the project off the ground and making ready for the obligatory network rounds.
