Blood and Chrome
Other than the initial announcement from Syfy Channel's executive vice president of programming Mark Stern and Blood and Chrome's co-producer Michael Taylor, no word has been given on if, or when, the series will be greenlit.
The plan is for the series to run in 9 or 10 installments, each installment being either 9 or 10 minutes in length.
Depending on the success of this webseries, other webseries in the Re-imagined Series universe may follow, or even lead to a backdoor pilot for a television series.
According to Taylor, the series is "about a young man's [William Adama] 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."
Further, Taylor points out that the scope of the series "isn't confined to Galactica. Far from it. It's a story that will take us to new corners of the Battlestar world (or worlds), and yet it aims to be a very contemporary war movie in a lot of ways. I would say I'm thinking as much of Afghanistan and Iraq--the reality of Hurt Locker, Sebastian Junger's Restrepo, and similar movies--as I am about about the largely implied past of Battlestar."
The series will also feature adult situations as, according to Taylor, the series will not "[shy] away from R-rated blood and guts and sex" due to it being initially meant for online consumption.
