All they intended was to use the name Earthsea, and some of the scenes from the books, in a generic McMagic movie with a meaningless plot based on sex and violence." Le Guin noted in particular how her people of color protagonists, who were a dusky skin tone evocative of Native Americans and a conscious alternative to the almost universally white heroes of much fantasy fiction, were cast with white actors except for one, Danny Glover, who is African-American.[12] Year 2004 (MMIV) was a leap year starting on Thursday of the Gregorian calendar. ...

Sci Fi Channel (United States) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (2629 words)
Sci Fi (sometimes rendered Sci-Fi when part of a longer phrase) is an American cable television channel, launched on September 24, 1992, specializing in science fiction, fantasy, horror, and paranormal programming.
The channel was launched on September 24, 1992 as a sister cable channel to USA Network by then-owners Paramount Pictures (which was later acquired by Viacom in 1994) and MCA (then part of Japanese electronic giant Matsushita), the owner of Universal Studios, each with a 50% stake in the venture.
The channel was seen as a natural fit with classic film and television series that both studios had in their vaults, including Rod Serling's Night Gallery and Paramount's Star Trek and classic Universal horror films such as Dracula and Frankenstein.
Sci Fi Channel Gets LEXX (700 words)

Sci Fi will start running the one-hour comedy/drama, which has already developed a cult following in most of the rest of the world, in January.
