The Path to Sci Fi Masters

Scifi-masters-320x246Coming up with a series title is never an easy process.  We recently struggled with a new title for an upcoming series that we acquired which will debut on Science, Sunday, February 12th at 10pm. 

The series originally aired in 2007 on ABC under the title, Masters of Science Fiction.  We made the decision to change the title to avoid the potential for confusion with another series that we currently air.  No problem, right? 

Well, actually, it was.  You see, we wanted to use the name of the series’ narrator in the title because he is a so highly regarded in the field of science. This required us to involve our Legal team who did a phenomenal job of obtaining his permission.  At the same time, we had to nail the new title and then obtain a legal clearance.  Well, we ultimately succeeded...or did we?

You be the judge.  The final title is “Stephen Hawking’s Sci Fi Masters”.  Work for you?

Check it out February 12th at 10pm.  If you’re a science fiction fan, I promise, you will not be disappointed!
