Syfy says it will not be taking its two-hour “Battlestar Galactica: Blood And Chrome” pilot to series on the channel, though the project could still evolve into a Web series. Which was the original idea anyway.
The project is a sequel to "Caprica" and a prequel to Ronald D. Moore's SciFi Channel version of "Battlestar Galactica."
Scripted by outer-space TV vet Michael Taylor (“Star Trek: Deep Space Nine,” “Star Trek: Voyager,” “Battlestar Galactica,” “Virtuality,” “Caprica”), the pilot stars Luke Pasqualino (Freddie in the original “Skins”) as the young, talented fighter pilot William Adama, a recent Academy graduate who finds himself assigned to the newest Battlestar in the Colonial fleet: the Galactica.
Adama finds himself at odds with his superior, Coker, played by former “Hellcats” regular Ben Cotton (“Stargate Atlantis,” “Harper’s Island”).
The pilot is now slated to find its way to Syfy as a stand-alone TV-movie.
