A while back I posted (http://boards.straightdope.com/sdmb/showthread.php?t=452216&highlight=skeptologists) about this TV pilot which was being produced on spec. Since then, they'd decided on the cast, which will include former Doper, Phil Plait (the Bad Astronomer); former Survivor cast member Yau Man Chan; Steven Novella of the podcast the Skeptic's Guide to the Universe; Michael Shermer; plus a physiologist from UC Davis and a mentalist. Here (http://skeptologists.com/cast/index.html) is some more info on the cast.

The pilot episode has been completed and they will be presenting it to networks soon. The producers of the pilot are requesting that people who are interested in seeing the pilot on TV send emails, which they will present to the networks as 'proof' that there is interest in the subject. The email address is on the Skeptoid (http://skeptoid.com/) website (where there is also a very brief video teaser on the show) and also on the show website (http://skeptologists.com/).

I already sent my email, as I'm very much hoping this show might actually be picked up and produced.

I sent an e-mail. I hope this actually makes it onto a network.
