James D'Arcy will play a psych officer in VIRTUALITY, Fox's two-hour backdoor pilot from BATTLESTAR GALACTICA creator Ronald D. Moore, UMS and BermanBraun, per THE HOLLYWOOD REPORTER.
Peter Berg will direct the sci-fi project, which is set aboard the Phaeton, Earth's first starship, on a 10-year journey to a distant solar system. To help the crew handle the long trip, NASA gives them advanced virtual reality modules, allowing them to assume identities and go anywhere they want.
D'Arcy's (CHURCHILL AT WAR) character produces the virtual reality shows. D'Arcy starred last year in another Fox sci-fi pilot, THEM, which was co-created by Moore's BATTLESTAR cohort David Eick.
