After all the excitement about the Battlestar Galactica: Blood And Chrome trailer Deadline has revealed that, while Syfy will still air the pilot, the network has no plans to make the show into an ongoing series.
Syfy may, though, still develop Blood And Chrome as a webseries. Syfy president Mark Stern issued the following statement:
“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. Our enthusiasm for this ambitious project has not waned.”
Battlestar Galactica: Blood And Chrome takes place in the 10th year of the first Cylon war. As the battle between humans and their creation, the sentient robotic Cylons, rages across the 12 colonial worlds, a young, talented fighter pilot, William Adama (Luke Pasqualino), finds himself assigned to one of the most powerful Battlestars in the Colonial fleet: the Galactica.
