TCA Press Tour: 'Caprica' stands alone
"Caprica," SyFy's prequel to its hit series "Battlestar Galactica," makes its two-hour debut Jan. 22. But don't worry. There's no need to fill that Netflix queue with all those seasons of "BSG" (unless, of course, you want to).
Knowledge of the sci-fi drama, which ended its run last spring, is not essential to understanding the new series set nearly three decades before the events that unfold in "Battlestar Galactica," insists executive producer Ronald Moore.
"It's compelling in its own right," Moore said. "There's virtually no tether to 'Battlestar Galactica' from a storytelling standpoint."
Guest stars will include James Marsters ("Buffy the Vampire Slayer"), Scott Porter ("Friday Night Lights") and Patton Oswalt ("Reno 911").
