Syfy developing new 'Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome' TV pilot


UPI News Service, 10/22/2010 

The U.S. cable network Syfy says it is working on a 2-hour television pilot called "Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome."

The announcement was made Friday by Mark Stern, Syfy's executive vice president of original programming and co-head of content for Universal Cable Productions.

"The 'Galactica' universe as re-imagined by Ron Moore and David Eick is rich with possibilities and back story," Stern said in a statement.

"We jumped at the chance to revisit the William Adama character and explore this exciting chapter in the BSG narrative which falls between the events of the original series and the prequel, 'Caprica,' currently airing on Syfy."

Eick, the pilot's executive producer, said the new show will maintain the earlier version's "themes of politics, social propaganda, and the timeless question: What does it mean to be human?" and "return us to the authentic, relentless depiction of combat and the agony and ecstasy of human-Cylon war, which was the hallmark of 'Battlestar Galactica's' early seasons."
