Dark Skies not coming to DVD after all
Well, this is too bad: the sci-fi show Dark Skies isn't going to be released on DVD as was originally announced.
Producer/writer Bryce Zabel announces on his blog that although The Crow multi-disc set is still on track to be released, Dark Skies won't be. He found out the news after coming home from Comic-Con. Sony has decided to cancel the release because getting the rights to the music used on the show would be too expensive.
Zabel says that he predicted this might be a problem a while ago and offered to work with Sony to get around the music somehow or use other music in certain scenes, but they never got back to him.
I'd like to see this show again. When it premiered I remember that I wasn't "knocked out" by it right away, but I thought it quite a clever, creative show (plus I'm a sucker for shows set in the early '60s), and I'd really like to see it again to see what my reaction would be now in these days of continuing sci-fi dramas like Lost and Heroes.
