||SCI FI fragt Was
SCI FI Channel announced
that it is developing What If, a "speculative
future" series that poses
intriguing scenarios of alternate realities. The program,
from NBC Universal Television Studio in association with
New Line Television, asks, "What if a moment in time could
change the world forever?"
What If is being developed as a
weekly, one-hour series. Some scenarios: What would happen
if the meteor had missed the Earth and dinosaurs
co-existed with the development of humans? What if Germany
had developed the first atomic weapon, bombed New York and
was victorious in World War II?
"This project has universal appeal," Mark Stern, SCI FI
Channel's executive vice president of original programming,
said in a statement. "Who hasn't wondered what our daily
lives might be like if certain moments in history had gone
a different way? What If will take an exciting,
thought-provoking approach to imagining such possibilities."
What If will incorporate computer-generated
graphics, dramatic recreations, narration and interviews.
Emmy Award-winning producer/director Jon Kroll (The
Amazing Race, Big Brother) will serve as executive
producer on the series.
What If is inspired by the book series of the same
name. The production will work with Byron Hollinshead,
president of American Historical Publications and producer
of the best-selling anthologies, which are published by
Putnam in the United States. (Text
