Eleventh Hour showrunners picked
The British version of the show has developed something of a cult following, despite the fact that only four two-part episodes were aired. It is science fiction, but it tries to be very realistic science fiction. It's mood is closer to CSI than to most of the more fantastic sci-fi shows out there.
I saw the first episode of the British version and while I enjoyed the performances of the leads I found the pace to be somewhat slow. I suspect any variety that Jerry Bruckheimer produces of this program will not suffer from that shortcoming. It will probably also have more explosions.
