Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome
Syfy ditched the pilot a while back and has opted instead to air this “Battlestar Galactica” prequel spin-off series as a telemovie. We’ve been waiting sometime to hear about a more concrete air date, but today they surprised us.

Turns out the pilot will first debut online via Machinma Prime’s Youtube Channel as a series of 10-12 minute chapters, the first one to be released this Friday (Nov 9th). The Syfy airing early next year will then be followed by a Blu-ray/DVD/VOD release.

CBS is looking into a third possible “NCIS” series following a mobile team of agents who live and work together as they go across the country to solve crimes.
