Stop me if you know this theme song...

"FLASH! Ah-aaaaaaah!"

And here's the news article that inspired that intro...

"Sci Fi Channel has greenlit production on Flash Gordon, based on the longtime comic strip franchise, it was announced Friday at the Television Critics Association tour.

Production of the 22 one-hour episodes begins in Canada in early this year, with a July 2007 launch targeted. A broadcast syndication windown will follow.

Under an agreement with property owner King Features Syndicate, the new series is being produced by RHI's Robert Halmi, Sr. and Robert Halmi, Jr., who previously produced Sci Fi's mini-series event Legend of Earthsea.

Ming, Dale Arden, and Dr. Hans Zarkov will be among the many characters in the new show, based on the comic strip created by Alex Raymond in 1934. "

Verrrrry interesting! Considering the revamp of Battlestar Galactica, could this be a good thing? Could we end out seeing a revamp of, oh, I don't know - The Powers of Matthew Star!? ;-) Or, if I had all my dreams come true, The Misfits of Science! (If only I could get all those episodes...)
