Caprica pilot to air on Sky One in November?

Caprica has been picked up by Sky One and will be part of the U.K. web's fall schedule. Sky One has bought the TV rights to the Galactica prequel from NBC Universal International Television Distribution and plans to air the two-hour television movie on Sky1 and Sky1 HD in November 2008.

David Smyth, Head of Acquisitions, Sky1, Sky2, Sky3 said: "Battlestar Galactica has surprised and awed audiences with its distinctive style and gripping story-telling. We're thrilled to have secured exclusive rights to the next chapter of this award-winning franchise."

Galactica producer David Eick recently told Newsarama: “[Caprica] looks great. Everyone seems to be cool with it. There’s been no indication of it being picked up as a series yet, but we are hoping.”

The news about Caprica going to series (or not) and the airdate on the SCI FI Channel in the U.S. is expected to come later this month.
