“Starz’s new drama ‘Incursion’ will revolve around a formidable sci-fi heroine. ‘Spartacus’ creator Steven DeKnight, who is developing ‘Incursion’ for Starz, cites James Cameron’s ‘Aliens’ as a major influence on the project. “I definitely wanted to avoid [another military show about a male protagonist],” DeKnight said. “I wanted to go down a different path.”
“Men and women serve in the same platoon,” DeKnight said. “It’s an R-rated, military show set in the future [and they’re] fighting aliens on different planets.” As it stands now, each season of the show will take place on a different world.
“I’m taking the same approach to what I did with ‘Spartacus,’ in that same-sex relationships are completely accepted,” DeKnight said. “It doesn’t matter if you’re gay or straight or bi or anything — in the future, that makes no difference whatsoever.” In fact, DeKnight said he hasn’t figured out a way to do so yet, but he’s hoping to depict polyamorous relationships, “where you can have a husband, a wife and a husband, or any combination thereof … I find [that] deeply fascinating.”
DeKnight said the focus of “Incursion” would be on the human side of every battle, in part because showing lots of computer-generated aliens is expensive. But the show’s aliens, when we do see them, will not look human at all. “This is no offense to anyone that does this — I know exactly why you do — but [our aliens] are not a human with a prosthetic on their head. No bumpy foreheads,” DeKnight said. He explained that aesthetic goal of the show is to give viewers a gritty, boots-on-the-ground perspective on war.
