FOX Plans Midseason 'Firefly' Reunion

Fillion and Minear will team on 'Drive'


December 15 2006

Sorry, Browncoats.

FOX isn't planning the kind of "Firefly" reunion you were hoping for.

The network is, however, reuniting "Firefly" star Nathan Fillion with "Firefly" executive producer Tim Minear on the midseason drama "Drive."

The series focuses on an underground race across America and is produced by Minear, Ben Queen and Greg Yaitanes. Fillion will play one of the leads, Alex Tully. The character is described in The Hollywood Reporter as "a charming, rogue landscaper who is coerced into joining the race to search for his wife, who has been abducted.

What the blazes is a rogue landscaper? Does that mean he recommends inappropriate topiaries? Or subverts the standard building permit process? Sadly, the trade paper offers no explanation. Thus, we like to think of him as the Jack Bauer of crabgrass.

Fillion replaces Ivan Sergei as the rogue landscaper.

The pact falls under a talent holding deal Fillion signed with Fox back in October. He might have been in the original pilot if he hadn't been shooting "White Noise 2: The Light" at the time.

Other credits for Fillion include the "Firefly" feature "Serenity," the horror-comedy "Slither" and "Two Guys, a Girl and a Pizza Place." <script src="http://www.zap2it.com/central/javascript/mtrx/s_code.js" type="text/javascript">
