Hmm. "THE DIVIDE -- What if the weirdest trio you could imagine -- a latenight DJ, his dead twin sister, and the local coroner -- teamed up to fight crime?" I wonder if the producers have been playing with this site - (www.rain-street.org)

well you can certainly see the non-space sf theme that was promised :(

most of these seem to be x-files-style or crime.

i personally find the following most interesting:

Other previously announced projects currently in development include Kim Stanley Robinson's "Red Mars," "A Tale of Two Cities," "MYST," "The Forever War," as well as Ursula Le Guin's "Earthsea" trilogy series and literary classic "Left Hand of Darkness."

The 'Original Telefilms' at the end of the article also make interesting if generally disturbing reading... 'Ghost Monkey'!

and is it just me or are most of those titles decidedly uninspired ;) "DEAD LAWYERS", "PSYCHIC INVESTIGATORS", "GARGOYLE", "SNAKEHEAD TERROR" - wibble!

Not directly related to what you're saying, but I remember similar comments on episode titles a while back (specifically with regard to Star Trek). In the original series, you had "For the world is hollow, and I have touched the sky". In TNG, you had "Cardassians". That's not entirely fair, since TOS had its share of short titles too (e.g. "Charlie X"), but I think there has been a trend that way. A similar thing applies to characters in comics - in the 60s, you'd have "The Steel-Jacketed Man", whereas in the 90s he would just be "Steeljack".
