The Caprica TV show was a 60 minute sci-fi series on SyFy about a future world where developments in artificial intelligence resulted in robots smart enough to effectively serve humankind. Like most new scientific developments, however, they were mostly used to kill humands who were unfortunate enough to be enemies of the robots masters. To make matters worse, the robots who have been instructed to kill may become self-aware and decide that humans are their enemies!

Caprica was a "spin-off" of the "1978 Battlestar Galactica TV show". Caprica took place fifty years before that series' timeline began when the evil Cylons were first manufactured. There was also an updated version of that series, the "2004 Battlestar Galactica series" and there was a "Galactica 1980" series where the Battlestars Galactica and the ships accompanying it finally found Earth!
Just in case you didn't figure it out, Sina Najafi played the role of William Adama on Caprica. That character would become the commander of the Battlestar Galactica 50 years in his future!
One thing that may have annoyed pure sci-fi fans a bit about Caprica was that Daniel Graystone was perhaps the greatest scientific mind of his day but he spent a lot of time trying to find the "soul" of his dead daughter in the virtual world called New Cap City. While there's no reason why a top scientist shouldn't believe in a soul, it's unlikely that he would believe that one could be digitalized.
When the characters from Tauron spoke their native tongue on Caprica, they were actually speaking ancient Greek!
While most of the scenes containing Cylons were done with computer graphics, there was an animated Cylon robot built at a cost of $100,000 for scenes where the real life actors physically interacted with a Cylon.
Hiro Kanagawa had a bit of luck in landing the role as Daniel Graystone's personal assistant, Cyrus Xander. That role was originally written for a sexy actor in their twenties. When Eric Stoltz saw Hiro's audition tape for another role, he suggested that Hiro would make a more believable aide for someone as important and wealthy as Graystone.
