>>>

LOS ANGELES (Zap2it.com) -  The Sci Fi Channel has given the green light to a spin-off of "Stargate SG-1" that will premiere next summer."Stargate Atlantis" will feature a new cast and story rooted in the existing "Stargate"  mythology. Sci Fi has ordered 20 episodes of the show from producer MGM.

"Atlantis" will follow a new team that discovers the remains of a secret base built by the Stargate's creators -- on Earth, of all places, in the lost city of Atlantis. The team's discovery eventually leads it to a faraway galaxy where a less-advanced human civilization faces a threat to its existence.

 Casting for "Stargate Atlantis" hasn't been announced yet. The new series will launch with a two-hour movie that features some crossover with characters from "SG-1.

"Following its premiere, "Atlantis" will run in tandem with "Stargate  SG-1," which will begin its third season on Sci Fi and eighth overall (it  began as a Showtime series) next summer. "SG-1's" current season will resume in  early 2004.
