'Battlestar' director helming NBC's magic series

OK, I have to come up with a better way of talking about this show in headlines other than “magic series,” but “Harry Potter for grown-ups” is getting played out and nobody really knows the name 17th Precinct yet.

Anyhoo: Michael Rymer will direct Ron Moore’s NBC pilot 17th Precinct, the crime procedural set in a world where magic exists. Battlestar Galactica fans know Rymer’s name. He directed many of the show’s pivotal episodes, including the first two parts of its miniseries.
