SciFi Wire ran an update on the Threshold pilot co-produced by Blade 2 scribe David Goyer. The pilot is finished, but no info yet on whether or not the show will be picked up. Anyway, here’s the latest scoop.
According to an internal document obtained by SCI FI Wire, Threshold begins with the discovery of an extraterrestrial spacecraft in the middle of the ocean. Molly Anne Caffrey (Carla Gugino), a physician and former NASA employee, is recruited to await the planet’s first contact, along with a carefully assembled team made up of a brilliant physicist, a language and communications expert and a covert operative, the document said. Together they implement Operation: Threshold, charged with finding out the purpose of the landing and the fate of the ship’s crew and preparing for the worst-case scenario of an alien invasion.
The cast of Threshold includes Charles S. Dutton and Star Trek: The Next Generation’s Brent Spiner, as well as Robert Benedict , House of Wax‘s Brian Van Holt and Lost‘s William Mapother.
