The CW picks up a Firefly-esque space cowboy series set on Mars

The CW is adding yet another new sci-fi series to its roster, and it sounds quite a bit like Joss Whedon’s beloved Firefly. Hmm.

Dubbed Red, the new Western/sci-fi series is described as a “neo-Western drama about the first human settlement on Mars and life on this new frontier, centering on the relationships between the town’s female sheriff, a doctor and a criminal.”

So, one-part Firefly and one-part Defiance, perhaps? Color us intrigued.

The series is being developed by Bruno Heller (The Mentalist) and Tom Szentgyorgyi (Journeyman, Drive), so that’s admittedly a bit of an untested team as far as straight up sci-fi goes (aside from Szentgyorgyi’s stint on the short-lived Journeyman). But the premise has us intrigued, and we can’t wait to see what they do with it.

What do you think? Have you been jonesing for a new sci-fi/Western?

There's no place I can be since I found Serenity.


Some shows take a long time to develop, others never get much past the script phase. I think this one is in the latter category. The two producers listed in the article do not have this on their IMDb resumes as something in production. The CW has been coming out with quite a few SF series the last couple of years, so they probably picked the ones they felt were best suited to their needs and "Red" got left in the Martian dust.

EDIT: On the other hand, there's Vince Gilligan's new show, "Battle Creek," coming up on CBS sometime this mid-season, which is based on a script he wrote over ten years ago. Some ideas do hang around a long time, so there might be hope for "Red" in the future, and maybe on a different network.
