Pitiched initially as a web series, Blood and Chrome
was greenlit to produce a pilot for the tellybox. It even got a snazzy promo trailer, which you can see, with your eyeballs, below...
Naturally, everyone frothed at the mouth at Blood and Chrome
’s promo trailer. So Syfy
, the geniuses who brought you “Sharktopus
” have decided the world doesn’t need a high profile science fiction series
with great writing, impressive effects, engaging concepts, gratiutious sex and excessive space battles.
Because who in their right minds would want that, right?!!!
In a recent statement, Syfy
’s president of original programming, Mark Stern explained,
"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."
Considering the very, very limited success of last year’s Mortal Kombat: Legacy
web series (despite the level of industry talent involved), hopes for a resurgence of the BSG
franchise are now well and truly fracked!
