Web-only future for Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome
A leaked trailer for the Battlestar Galactica prequel looks impressive, but it is primed as a web-based series only.
The proposed prequel for Battlestar Galactica, Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome, is no longer a TV project, but may survive as a web-based series.
This is despite an impressive looking trailer that was leaked last week for the project, set 20 years after Caprica and roughly 40 years before Galactica.
The unsanctioned trailer was removed from YouTube (but you can still see it at Gizmodo).
Syfy President of Original Content Mark Stern said in a statement, “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. 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.”
Shame! That trailer is slick stuff…
