Battlestar’s Ronald D. Moore Setting Up New Series, Helix, At Syfy

Ronald D. Moore has been trying to make straight-to-series deals, say Deadline, avoiding the need to shoot pilots before getting a full commission. Nice position to be in.

As a result of this strategy, Syfy will be picking up his series Helix for a full thirteen episodes if the i-dotting and t-crossing goes okay in their ongoing contract negotiations.

All we know about Helix so far makes it sound just a little like The Thing, which Moore himself adapted-cum-sequelised on paper just a few years back, though the eventual remake film didn’t use his script.

The show will be:

About a team of scientists investigating a possible disease outbreak at an Arctic research facility who find themselves trying to protect the world from annihilation.

The script was apparently written on spec by one Cameron Porsendah, Untested, but you can read his screenplay Old Nothing online.
