Battlestar Galactica: Blood And Chrome Not Moving Ahead As A TV Show

Originally conceived as a series for the web, Blood and Chrome was given a TV pilot order and it’s the trailer for that we’ve been enjoying all day.

But despite the very positive reaction to this promo, Syfy have decided not to go ahead with a full series and if they make more episodes, it will be to their original plan for web videos.

Deadline are saying that the pilot is likely to air on TV as a movie. They also quote a new statement from Syfy’s president of original programming, Mark Stern:

We are actively pursuing it as was originally intended: a groundbreaking digital series that will launch to audiences beyond the scope of a television screen. The 90-minute pilot movie will air on Syfy in its entirety at a future date.

Times are tight and so, I guess, Stern’s belt must be too. Shame, though, because I don’t know if a web series is really going to attract the calibre of writing and directing talent the show could use.
