Source Code to become TV series

CBC has picked up the rights to Duncan Jones' magnificent Source Code, and is aiming turn turn it into a weekly telly series.

The pitch is as follows: “Three former federal agents who are part of a top-secret program use Source Code technology to jump into the consciousness of people involved in tragic events.”

Which sounds a lot like Quantum Leap meets… Quantum Leap.

As well as Quantum Leap, we imagine it'll probably reference Quantum Leap, Quantum Leap and Quantum Leap.

Which is fine by us. Especially if Scott Bakula has a regular role (he did cameo in the movie, after all), ideally reprising his Sam Beckett character. Who, you may remember, appeared in Quantum Leap. Quantum Leap.

Mark Gordon (Grey’s Anatomy, Criminal Minds) will produce and Steve Maeda (Lost, Lie to Me) will head up the writing team, and they'll be aiming to get it on screens in 2012.

Let's hope it's as good as Quantum Leap. We love Quantum Leap.
