Buck Rogers Online?

James Cawley as Kirk“James Cawley is the Trek fan who has been producing some pretty good Trek episodes using pro actors and writers,” reminds Bjo Trimble, sending along this press notice that a new Buck Rogers production might be in the works:

James Cawley (executive producer and star of Star Trek: Phase II) recently announced at Dragon*Con in Atlanta that he is working with the Dille Family Trust to secure the rights to do a Buck Rogers Internet series. Unlike the Star Trek fan productions Cawley has produced, this would be a for-profit project authorized by the Dille estate. The webisodes will initially be set in the 1930’s era of the original comic strip before of course moving to the 25th Century, and will feature the 1970s TV series’ Erin Gray as Dr. Huer.
