'Buffy' and 'Caprica' Veterans Team Up for 'Husbands,' a Cheeky Web Series (VIDEO)

by Maureen Ryan, posted Sep 13th 2011 2:30PM
Couples going to Las Vegas and impulsively tying the knot while drunk is a longstanding ritual for both celebrities and civilians.

Now that gay couples can get married, why shouldn't they be part of that tradition? That's the question that writer/performer Brad Bell and television writer/producer Jane Espenson ('Battlestar Galactica,' 'Game of Thrones,' 'Buffy') asked themselves when they were creating 'Husbands,' a web series that premieres Tuesday.

In the 11-episode comedy, Bell and Sean Hemeon play a performer and a newly out major-league baseball player who get married in Vegas, only to wake up with hangovers and the realization that they don't know each other well. Alessandra Torresani, who's best known for playing Zoe Graystone on 'Caprica,' plays their frequently inebriated friend, Haley.

Michael Eisner Working on Newspaper Comedy Starring Alessandra Torresani

by Chris Harnick, posted Dec 9th 2010 10:35AM
Alessandra TorresaniAttention fellow journalists: Our time to shine is now! ... sort of.

Let me explain: Ex-Disney chief Michael Eisner's Tornante Co. is preparing a short pilot presentation for a comedy about a young journalist.

According to Deadline Hollywood, 'Caprica' star Alessandra Torresani will headline 'Circling the Drain.' Her character, a young reporter in the style section at a newspaper, loses her cushy position and winds up at the obituary desk.

Eisner was involved in the development of the project. "He loved the idea of a young girl who is starting out life writing about death against the backdrop of an industry that may also be circling the drain," Cohen said.

'Caprica' Star Magda Apanowicz on Upcoming Half-Season, the Growth of Lacy, and What It's Like to Hug a Cylon

by Chris Jancelewicz, posted Oct 5th 2010 9:30AM
When we last left 'Caprica' (which seems like ages ago), things were descending into chaos. At the center of the madness – the suicide attempt by Amanda, Zoe's rebellious escape, the U-187 – sits one lynchpin of a character: Lacy Rand. Played by Canadian actor Magda Apanowicz, Lacy has grown from a background character into a crucial game-changer. Nearly every plotline hinges on her actions.

TV Squad caught up with the ever-gregarious Apanowicz right before the finale of season 1, and she is nothing at all like the subservient, malleable Lacy. She spoke with us about the upcoming season 1.5, how in love with 'Battlestar Galactica' she is, and what it's like to hug a Cylon.

Zoe Escapes on 'Caprica'On 'Caprica's' latest episode (Fri., 9PM ET on SyFy), Zoe (Alessandra Torresani) tried getting help to escape her dad's lab.

But -- having the body of a robot -- she only scared the lab tech in the process, even after some explanation. "I'm not really a robot, OK?" she pleaded. "I'm Zoe Graystone, and I'm trapped in here. My father put me in this body after I died. Help me! I need to escape!"

How Should 'Caprica' End? Ron Moore Has No Idea!

by Mike Moody, posted Mar 15th 2010 5:04PM
caprica zoe'Caprica' continues to deliver its own unique blend of intriguing sci-fi drama while also adding to the mythology of 'Battlestar Galactica'. So far, we've seen the "birth" of the first Cylon, explored Admiral Adama's Tauron roots, and discovered the origins of the Cylons' monotheistic leanings. But how far will 'Caprica' take us? What will the series' end game look like? Will it conclude with the first Cylon war? The eventual fall of the thirteen colonies?

In a recent video interview (embedded after the jump), series creator Ron Moore said that the end point of the series isn't clear yet. The writers still haven't decided how far they want to take the story. Moore did promise that we'd see Zoe's avatar "progress." He also revealed that we might eventually see her "in the flesh as it were, in the real world."

Review: 'Caprica' - 'Reins of a Waterfall'

by Jason Hughes, posted Feb 6th 2010 9:55AM
Esai Morales, 'Caprica'(S01E03) Now begins the reign of mistrust. With the characters generally established, as well as their relationships to one another, it's time for the show to start sowing the seeds of conflict, and they get right down to it. The first thing they do is establish the Adams Adamas as even more brutish than I anticipated. The hats, coats and the whole 1950s gangster look should have been a tip-off, it appears.

Add to that the difficulties the Graystone's are dealing with now that Amanda has blurted out to all the twelve colonies that their daughter Zoe was a terrorist, and responsible for the train bombing that killed her, her boyfriend Ben and Joseph Adama's wife and daughter, among many other people. The unfair thing to Zoe is that while we know better, how can anything different be proven?

You'll see robotics on Caprica. Sorta - TCA Report

The Caprica cast and producers at the Winter 2010 TCAs
Yesterday, the cast and producers of the Battlestar Galactica prequel Caprica took to the Langham Huntington stage for their panel discussion. If it feels like Caprica has been around forever, it sort of has; the pilot has been available for viewing since at least the early fall. But the series is finally premiering on Syfy on January 22,. and I'm sure everyone's charged up to see it.

The most interesting part of the panel, at least as far as I wad concerned, was when executive producer David Eick explained how they were going to establish that the character of Zoey, played by Alessandra Torresani, is a Cylon whose body is inhabited by the dead girl's essence or soul or whatever you want to call it.

Apparently, some of her scenes will be shot twice, usually when she enters them. First you'll see her in robotic form. Then, when they come back to her, she'll look like Torresani. The former scenes will involve CGI and actors talking to tennis balls, yadda yadda, but Eick felt it was the way to go in order to keep that connection intact with the viewers.
