Syfy has announced that they will not be picking up Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome to series. Mark Stern, Syfy Original Content and Co-Head of Universal Cable Productions, explained that the project will instead air on Syfy as a 90-minute movie:
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. The 90-minute pilot movie will air on Syfy in its entirety at a future date.
