"Battlestar Galactica" fans will have a chance to enjoy their favorite space drama on a bigger scale. "Battlestar Galactica: Razor" will screen at select movie theaters Nov. 12, nearly two weeks before it debuts on the Sci Fi Channel. "Razor" revolves around the harrowing adventures of young officer Kendra Shaw (Stephanie Jacobsen) who becomes a ruthless warrior under the wing of Battlestar Pegasus commander Admiral Helena Cain during a six-month siege by the Cylons. After Shaw proves herself as a battle-hardened protege, she finds difficulty dealing with Lee Adama (Jamie Bamber), whose first mission as a commander is replacing Cain on Pegasus. The special two-hour extended episode will hit theaters, thanks to Sci Fi and Microsoft, in New York, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, Chicago, Boston, San Francisco, Dallas and Seattle. Admission is free, but seats are extremely limited. Ticket information can be found at www.BattlestarEvent.com.
'Dr. Hahn' joins 'Grey's'
Brooke Smith made her sixth appearance on "Grey's Anatomy" last week. She won't have to wait long for her seventh. Smith has joined the ABC series full-time as Dr. Erica Hahn, who's becoming the new head of cardiothoracic surgery at Seattle Grace Hospital. She's a de facto replacement for the departed Preston Burke (Isaiah Washington), her one-time rival. She's the second new regular to join the show this season, after Chyler Leigh, and her name was included with the regular cast in the credits.
More 'Dirty Sexy'
Never miss a local story.
With a possible writers strike, networks are continuing to hedge their bets on their new shows. The latest shows to get a little extra love, but not a full-season pickup, are ABC's "Dirty Sexy Money" and The CW's "Reaper." Both shows have received orders for six additional scripts, according to The Hollywood Reporter. "Dirty Sexy Money," starring Peter Krause, is averaging a shade under 10 million viewers a week thus far this season. "Reaper," meanwhile, is bringing in about 3.25 million viewers and stars Bret Harrison.
