Alan Tudyk as Hoban 'Wash' Washburne in 'Firefly'

Alan Tudyk, who plays Dale Maddox in ABC’s pilot remake of the 1980’s sci-fi series V, has told reporters that the visual effects in V: The Series are being handled by legendary Zoic Studio’s

Zoic were the masters behind the effects in Battlestar Galactica, Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles and Firefly and their work can be seen episode to episode in Fringe (to name just a few of the many series they work on).  You can check out stills of their effects in our interview with Andrew Orloff from Zoic Studio’s here.

“It’s really awesome effects,” Tudyk said. “The effects are done by Zoic who did Firefly. Zoic does all the spacecrafts. Anything requiring digital enhancement is Zoic, and they do a great job.”

The connections between the V: The Series and Firefly don’t stop with Zoic.  Tudyk himself previously starred in the popular Joss Whedon series as Hoban ‘Wash’ Washburne.

“Then, of course, Morena Baccarin is in it,” Tudyk continues,”and she’s the leader of the aliens, so you can’t get any better than that.”

Morena Baccarin played Inara Serra alongside Tudyk in Firefly and the feature film Serenity.

Don’t get too excited about an on screen reunion though as the two don’t meet in the pilot for V: The Series.

“No, but we got to hang out, and that was cool,” Tudyk said.

Although Tudyk says the pilot is “really good”, ABC has yet to green-light a full series.
