‘Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome’ Gets Syfy Premiere Date
A long time ago, in a very different galaxy far, far away, 'Battlestar Galactica' fans were excited by the prospect of their favorite Syfy series being resurrected as the prequel effort "Blood & Chrome," chronicling a young William Adama in the days of the first Cylon war. Syfy passed on the project as a series, and seemingly shelved the outing altogether before airing the pilot movie in pieces as a web series. Now as promised Syfy has issued an official premiere date for 'Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome' to air on the network in its entirety, so find out when inside!
At long last, 'Battlestar Galactica' will return to Syfy, albeit not in the format we're used to. Deadline has revealed that the network will officially air the prequel event 'Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome' in its intended entirety on February 10, after distributing the story in multiple episodes over the web.
‘Blood & Chrome’ serves as a prequel to the re-imagined ‘Battlestar Galactica’ proper, highlighting the early years of the Human-Cylon war, in which a young William Adama (Luke Pasqualino) operates as a fighter pilot, alongside battle-weary officer Coker (Ben Cotton). The series is the second attempt to prequel-ize ‘Battlestar Galactica,’ after Syfy series ‘Caprica’ told the story of the Cylons’ creation, lasting only one season before cancellation.
David Eick executive produced the project along with Michael Taylor, who wrote the teleplay from a story by Taylor, Eick, Bradley Thompson and David Weddle, all 'Battlestar Galactica' alum.
The series (which garnered 8 million views) remains online, but will you check out the series in its entirety February 10 on Syfy? Check out the trailer below, and judge for yourself in the comments!
