"My God, It's Full of Stars: A Journey to the Edge of Science Fiction" is intended to examine "the very frontiers of space and science to produce the definitive television history of science fiction," the cable television network said in a news release this week.

"The story of one of the liveliest and most stimulating genres in popular culture will be told through its impact on cinema, television and literature," the network said.

"Each episode will explore one of the enduring themes of science fiction: time travel, the exploration of space, robots and artificial intelligence, and aliens. It will be made with the help of the genre's greatest pioneers: the filmmakers, writers, actors, and graphic artists whose obsession and imagination has taken them into the unknown. Having explored the future, the past, parallel universes and galaxies far, far away, they are now ready to report back on their experiences."

No air date has been set yet.

BBC America is the home of the sci-fi and supernatural series "Doctor Who," "Orphan Black," "Being Human," "In The Flesh" and "Jonathan Strange and Mr Norrell."
