Kevin Smith to take on TV

Kevin Smith has a busy road ahead of him.  Not only is he working on a new pilot for the CW, Reaper, but he’s also got two pretty geektastic shows in his future.

It’s been pretty common knowledge for a while now that he would be taking on an episode of Heroes: Origins, a set of six or so one-shot episodes to take place over the show’s hiatus in December.  But over the weekend, ViewAskew announced that he would also be sitting in the directors chair for an episode of SCI FI’s Battlestar Galactica.

It’s cool, but it is scary because it is like, “What the f—? I can’t bring anything to that show.” That show is genius and they have a very distinctive visual style. But you are safe as a kitten. If you go in there and say, “I’m going to shoot everything in one big master shot,” they’ll go, “No you’re not, because that is not what we do on ‘Battlestar Galactica.’” I guess it is more about performance-oriented stuff, but at the same time that cast is top notch. How do you f—– direct Mary McDonnell?

I can see how it could work with Heroes, as the one-shot nature of his episode will allow him to inject his own style, but he doesn’t have that luxury with Battlestar Galactica.  Should be interesting to see how that turns out.
