Screenrant reports that a reboot of the old sci-fi series Space: 1999 is in the works. It remains to be seen whether it will enjoy the success of the new Battlestar Galactica or the disappointment of the recent version of V by the same creators.
I think they should do a bit of stunt casting and get Newt Gingrich to appear, at least in the pilot episode. I don't know what role he should play. He actually reminds me more of Sire Uri in the original Battlestar Galactica pilot than any character in Space: 1999. But the recent Saturday Night Live sketch "Newt Gingrich: Moon President" was hilarious.
