Battlestar's Return


You just can't keep a good Colonial down. Battlestar Galactica, which ended its run in 2009, may be returning as a Web series called "Blood & Chrome."


The Chicago Tribune is reporting that the series will focus on the young William "Husker" Adama during the first Cylon War. An older Adama, of course, was played by Edward James Olmos in the TV series.


Michael Taylor, co-executive producer of Galactica and its spin-off Caprica, will write the script for the series, which he describes as being "about a young man's initiation into war: both the realities of war as fought by soldiers on the ground (and in Battlestars and Vipers), and the somewhat less real version portrayed in the media."


"Blood & Chrome" will run nine or 10 episodes at 10 minutes each, and if it's greenlit into production will be shot on green screens and virtual sets. The Battlestar sets were scanned before being struck when the show ended, and hence are available to be recreated for something like this.
