'Battlestar Galactica' Prequel Not Picked Up to TV Series, May Become Web Series

March 22, 2012, 1:20 am GMT

Syfy decides not to move forward with 'Battlestar Galactica: Blood and Chrome' as a regular series, but promises to air the 90-minute pilot at a future date.



"Battlestar Galactica" fans may be left disappointed to learn that Syfy has passed on "Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome". After a trailer for the project hit the web earlier this week, the network announced that it will not move forward with the spin-off prequel as a TV series.

"Though the vision for 'Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome' has evolved over the course of the past year, our enthusiasm for this ambitious project has not waned," Syfy president original programming Mark Stern stated on Wednesday, March 21.

Though so, there is still hope that "Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome" will be a web-based series. "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," Stern added. He also said that "the 90-minute pilot movie will air on Syfy in its entirety at a future date."

Just two days prior, on Monday night to be exact, the trailer for the "Battlestar Galactica" prequel went viral. It's set to Trent Reznor's version of "Immigrant Song", which was used in "The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (2011)" trailer. The video, however, has been taken down by NBC Universal, with a representative for Syfy explaining that it was not an officially sanctioned trailer.
