‘Battlestar Galactica’ Creator Ron Moore Reunites with Syfy for Dark Thriller ‘Helix’
Even though Syfy's brief 'Battlestar Galactica' revival mini-series "Blood & Chrome" didn't exactly light the world on fire, any sci-fi fan would recognize series creator Ron Moore's contribution to science fiction across the board. Recently rumored to have written episodes of the (potentially) shelved 'Star Wars' TV series, Moore's next project will most likely take him back to the Syfy channel, as the writer nears a deal for a straight-to-series order of a new "dark thriller" titled 'Helix.' Find out the make-up of Ron Moore's new series inside!
'Battlestar Galactica' may have come and gone, but that won't stop series co-creator Ron Moore or his relationship with Syfy. New reports from Deadline suggest that Syfy is nearing a deal with the writer/executive producer to helm new series 'Helix,' likely to be given a 13-episode order instead of the usual pilot model.
Produced by Sony Pictures TV, Ron Moore's new project 'Helix' would follow "a team of scientists investigating a possible disease outbreak at an Arctic research facility who find themselves trying to protect the world from annihilation." Based on a spec script from potential co-executive producer Cameron Porsandeh, Syfy is reportedly eying 'Helix' for a debut later this year.
Well, what say you? Would you be happy to have 'Battlestar Galactica's Ron Moore back on Syfy for 'Helix?' How do you think the new series sounds?
