... maybe don't get your hopes up, nerds. Sounds like Blood & Chrome, despite that teaser, is a no-go for Syfy, with the increasingly non-science-fiction-oriented channel not really knowing what the hell to do with it. Via Deadline:
Blood & Chrome, initially envisioned as a web series, was greenlighted as a two-hour TV pilot in October 2010. Because of intensive post-production, including special effects, the pilot was not delivered to Syfy until last November. As of January, Syfy president original programming Mark Stern was quoted as saying that he the network brass were “trying to figure out the economics right now” and that he hoped those would be figured out. Now, the network has passed on the project as a regular series but is looking to do it as a digital one, while airing the already produced pilot on the network as a movie.
Whether or not it'll actually turn into a web series or a digitally distributed series or whatever is anyone's guess, though I'd wager if Syfy didn't jump on it as a series, there probably isn't a whole lot of hope for it. But hey! If nothing else, at least we'll get a possibly ill-advised BSG prequel
pilot movie that won't have an ending! Yay!
