Scalzi’s ‘Redshirts’ Coming to Television

It is reported that Scalzi’s wonderfully clever book ‘Redshirts’ is being adapted for television by FX (some US cable company). This is absolutely great news and hopefully it is done faithfully to the book.

The story of ‘Redshirts’ is a direct satire of Star Trek, where unimportant Redshirts get killed very often, yet senior officers seem invincible. A group of the Redshirts notice this and start plotting and investigating. A great story ensues.

I hope these guys have a great legal team as who knows how Paramount, the company that owns Star Trek, may want to act about it.
