*tries not to explode with excitement* Farscape Web Series

Beverly Hills, CA – July 15, 2007 – Continuing SCI FI's commitment to providing viewers with a fully immersive, multi-platform entertainment experience, SCIFI.COM today announced a slate of online programming exclusive to SCI FI Pulse, the Channel's popular broadband channel. With over 34 million streams since its launch in April 2006, SCI FI Pulse is dedicated to providing users a dynamic and highly original lineup of online content.

It's the return everyone's been frelling waiting for! SCIFI.COM has ordered a 10-part webisode series based on the multi-award-winning Farscape, the fan and critical darling that has been widely recognized as one of the greatest sci-fi series in television history. Executive produced by Brian Henson and Robert Halmi, Jr., and produced by The Jim Henson Company, in association with RHI Entertainment, the series will revive and expand the beloved Farscape universe.

Also MediaSavant over on TF said this:

I believe today is SciFi's day at the Television Critics' Association Press Tour in Pasadena. That explains why the press releases are coming out today. There's also a press release about Ben Browder's miniseries out today. Link

If they are having their press conference around now, look in the papers tomorrow or on blogs tonight. Some of the critics like Rob Owen of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazzette (an old Farscape supporter) are filing reports via blogs at their newspaper websites.

All I have say is if it's true...

Bust out the bubbly...and Frell me dead!

ETA: Looks like the real deal!
