The Sci Fi Channel is planning to send a dozen civilians to Mars. Mind you, ratings for “Taken” weren’t so good that the cable network can actually afford a mission to the red planet. Instead, Sci Fi is developing a new unscripted series that will simulate what it might be like if earthlings were ever to colonize Mars. The series, titled “Life on Mars,” is one of several unscripted shows (Sci Fi calls them “alternative reality” programs) the network has in development.
