James Marsters (Buffy, Caprica), Stephanie Jacobsen (Melrose Place, Battlestar Galactica: Razor) and Naoko Mori (Torchwood) fans, hang in there! Syfy is still keeping Three Inches in mind for a series pickup. The series had initially lost out to Alphas for a place in the fall line-up, but network president Mark Stern states that they have not thrown Three Inches out of the window:
“We’re looking at another way to get Three Inches going. We love it, so we’re trying to figure out a way to do both [that and Alphas] right now.”
As SciFi Mafia reported to you last December, one of the options the network was looking at for Three Inches was to reformat it from a one-hour format into a half-hour structure. Hopefully, they can make this work!
Three Inches’ sci-fi star-studded cast includes James Marsters (Dragonball 2, Caprica, Smallville), Andrea Martin (My Big Fat Greek Wedding, Not for Nothing), Stephanie Jacobsen (Melrose Place, Battlestar Galactica: Razor), Antony Del Rio (The Superhero Squad Show, God of War: Ghost of Sparta), Naoko Mori (Lennon Naked, Torchwood), Kyle Schmid (Smallville, The Covenant) and Brandon Jay McLaren (Human Target, Being Erica).
In Three Inches, professional daydreamer and underachiever, Walter Spackman (Noah Reid) is struck by lightning, and develops a unique “super” power — the ability to move any object using just his mind… but only a distance of three inches. He’s soon recruited by a covert team of superheroes each gifted with their own extraordinarily ordinary abilities. Together, the unlikely band of heroes proves that “super” is simply a state of mind.
