The Sarah Connor Chronicles (T:SCC)
The Sarah Connor Chronicles (T:SCC) is a TV-series released by C2 Pictures and Warner Bros. Television, and shown for the first time by the Fox Broadcasting Company, through the FOX Networks. The show features several new actors portraying the story of Sarah and John Connor, right after the events of Terminator 2: Judgment Day (1991).
This TV-series has an whole new cast, including but not limited to, Lena Headey (as Sarah Connor), Thomas Dekker (as John Connor), Richard T. Jones (as FBI-agent James Ellison) and Summer Glau (as 'Cameron', a good female Terminator sent back to protect the duo).
The show, or at least its pilot series, is slated for a 2008 release on the Fox Network and, depending on the rating, an entire series is expected to air just a few weeks after.
The script for the series has been written by Josh Friedman, a Hollywood writer whose credits include Steven Spielberg's 'War of the Worlds' and Brian De Palma's 'The Black Dahlia'. Friedman also serves as executive producer and showrunner, along with C2's senior vice president of development, James Middleton.
The pilot episodes are directed by David Nutter, whose credits include several highly entertaining TV-series of 'Smallville', 'Supernatural', and 'Without a Trace'. Though the TV budget is a lot smaller, Nutter is prepared to follow in the footsteps of blockbuster director James Cameron, wanting "to live up, as best he can, to the bar that Jim Cameron set. It has to carry as much of a punch."

At the end of Terminator 2: Judgment Day, Sarah vanquished the liquid metal Terminator sent from the future to kill her teenage son, John. Sarah and John now find themselves alone in a very dangerous, complicated world. Fugitives from the law, they are confronted with the reality that still more enemies from the future, and the present, could attack at any moment.
The Sarah Connor Chronicles (T:SCC) reveals what happens when Sarah (Lena Headey, 'The Brothers Grimm', '300') stops running and goes on the offensive against an ever-evolving technological enemy bent on destroying her and her sons life, and perhaps the world. Her son, 15-year-old John Connor (Thomas Dekker, 'Heroes'), knows that he may be the future savior of mankind, but is not yet ready to take on the mantle of leadership that he's told is his destiny. John finds himself inextricably drawn to Cameron (Summer Glau, 'Serenity', 'The Unit'), an enigmatic and otherworldly student at his high school, who soon proves to be much more than his confidante - she assumes the role of Sarah and John's fearless protector.
On their trail are not only threats from the future, but an intelligent and tough FBI agent, James Ellison (Richard T. Jones, 'Judging Amy'), who soon becomes a powerful ally.
The series represents an exciting reinvention of the Terminator franchise, in which the strong and intrepid Sarah discovers that protecting her son and stopping the rise of the machines is more difficult than she had ever imagined.
