NBC Universo, a sports and entertainment cable channel for Latinos, announced today that they will now be playing Battlestar Galactica in Spanish. The show was one of the highest-rated series of all time for the SyFy Network. The launch starts Wednesday July 29, 2015 at 9:00pm ET/PT.
Actor Edward James Olmos is excited for the news:
“Battlestar Galactica defined a special era for me as an actor and I am very proud to have been part of such an iconic franchise — It’s thrilling to know that this work carries on and will now be enjoyed by legions of new Spanish-speaking fans,” said Edward James Olmos. “The show also delved into issues of mixed races and gender equality which I think new fans will find to be quite relevant today.”
