SciFi Channel is producing a prequel series to Battlestar Galactica called Caprica. Caprica will tell the story of how the Cylons came into being and will give us a look at the Colonial world, pre-apocalypse. Two of the key characters have been cast, and the official announcements went online this week. Joseph Adama, the father of Battlestar Galactica’s Admiral William Adama, will be played by Esai Morales (Jericho and NYPD Blue). Paula Malcomson (Deadwood) has been cast as the female lead, named Amanda.
