This sounds very exciting! I'm not familiar with the cast, but it seems to be highly regarded, and I love, love, love the series synopsis. I'm keeping fingers crossed that it lives up to billing (and, as I've mentioned before, I trust Jamie's judgement--with the occasional exception, he's chosen roles wisely).
Something no one's mentioned here (at least since I started visiting this site) is Jamie's receptiveness to British television. With the huge success of BSG, I would imagine it's tempting for him to remain in Hollywood and shoot for the higher profile roles, to stay a big fish in a big pond. The British market is getting larger, thanks to the increased access to British television in America and worldwide, but there is still a sizable difference in potential viewership numbers, and the publicity machine in Hollywood is monstrous. I admire his willingness to go home to the UK where, as I think most of us know, quality television is made, even if he won't necessarily maintain a high profile in the States by doing so.
