Battlestar spin-off gets the green light!

According to yesterday's Variety:

The Sci-Fi Channel has given the green light to Caprica, a prequel series to Battlestar Galactica. The two-hour "backdoor" pilot begins production in Vancouver this spring. Both Rondal D. Moore and David Eick, the executive producers for BSG, will join with Universal Media Studios to work on Caprica. Rene Aubuchon will co-write the Caprica pilot with Moore, and Jeff Reiner will direct it. Casting begins soon.

BSG ends its 3½-year run with its last 20 episodes starting on April 4, so this comes at the most perfect time!
* Thanks for letting me know about this, Steven!
