As excited as we were for 'Battlestar Galactica' creator Ron Moore to return for Syfy's upcoming original series 'Helix,' it seems the prolific sci-fi vet has an even higher-profile gig at Starz! The cable network has officially issued a series order to time travel romance 'Outlander,' based on the popular Diana Gabaldon books of the same name, but just how involved will Ron Moore be?
We're excited for former 'Battlestar Galactica' head Ron Moore to get back into the Syfy game with the buzzy new horror series 'Helix,' and today the cable network has given us yet another reason. Fresh off his work on NBC's 'Hannibal,' film and TV director David Slade will helm the pilot episode of Syfy's 'Helix,' but just how soon can we expect to see Ron Moore's latest work?
Among Syfy's numerous pilot offerings for the 2013-14 pilot season, we're most excited to get a look at 'Helix,' a dark new sci-fi thriller executive produced by 'Battlestar Galactica' redux creator and show-runner Ron Moore. The hotly-anticipated new series has just given out its first teaser trailer, but is it as dark and unsettling as we've dreamed? Get a first look at Ron Moore's new Syfy thriller 'Helix' inside!
No, it's not another 'Battlestar Galactica' prequel in the vein of the recent 'Blood & Chrome,' but we'll take any excuse to get series creator Ron Moore's work back on TV. Following initial reports in January, Syfy has officially ordered the 'Battlestar Galactica' helmer's new sci-fi series 'Helix' for a full 13 episodes, but will Moore himself be at the helm?

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!
Before we all let the tragic reminder of Heath Ledger's untimely death sink in (too late), it seems some of his work may find new life. From the looks of it, ABC and former 'Battlestar Galactica' showrunner Ron Moore are getting ready to rock you, developing an adaptation of Ledger's 2001 jousting feature 'A Knight's Tale' for the small screen! But, will the new adaptation feature the same contemporary feel and modern soundtrack as its predecessor?
