David Eick Talks about Battlestar Galactica Blood & Chrome. It’s all about what makes Adama Tick. #bloodandchrome November 9, 2012

This afternoon, on this great occasion of the premiere of the latest chapter in Battlestar Galactica storied history, David Eick got on the phone with reporters (including ShowMeSciFi.com) to talk about Blood and Chrome

It truly was an eye opener for us.

For one, Eick rejected claims that SyFy cancelled the show or gave up on it. Instead he argued that the entire 10 episode arc was always intended to be some kind of web serial.

Going a step further he said that the show looks as good – or better – than shows with 10x the budget. That’s all because the show is doing its own effects in house and not sending them to a third party.

“If you can build an army that is accountable to production – with no overhead or amortization other than your show, so a rag tag  fleet of experts –  if you have the  time to put together thatt kind of squad you can do amazing things.”

Fundamentally the show is about what  makes Adama tick – and how betrayal and importance of a male figure to depend on are critical.

Overall the goal is to deliver hard hitting mission oriented accessible stories that enable new fans to enjoy the show as well as delivering to the die-hard fans as well. It’s about going into darker and more human places than other scifi shows.

We pulled one of the most interesting bits from the conf in the video below. Long story short, SyFy did no reject Blood and Chrome:

It’s finally here.

SO SAY WE ALL.

This highly anticipated chapter in the Battlestar Galactica saga takes place in the midst of the first Cylon war. As the battle between humans and their creation, the sentient robotic Cylons, rages across the 12 colonial worlds, gifted fighter pilot, William Adama (Luke Pasqualino, The Borgias), finds himself assigned to one of the most powerful battlestars in the Colonial fleet: the Galactica. Full of ambition and hungry for action, Adama quickly finds himself at odds with his co-pilot, the battle-weary officer Coker (Ben Cotton, Alcatraz). With only 47 days left in his tour of duty, Coker desires an end to battle as much as Adama craves its onset. Lili Bordán (Silent Witness) also stars.

First episode is now up on Machinima:

In March of this year, SyFy (you know that network that used to be SciFi Channel and now doesn’t support any real SciFi) CANCELLED the Battlestar Galactica spinoff – Blood and Chrome.
Turns out though that a full pilot has already been produced and we can all see it on Friday November 9th — or at least start to see it.
You see the plan from the braniacs at Syfy is to have Blood and Chrome show up as a webisode series. Remember, that back in February of 2011, SyFy green lit the two hour pilot. At the time SyFy wrote:

Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome takes place in the 10th year of the first Cylon war. As the battle between humans and their creation, the sentient robotic Cylons, rages across the 12 colonial worlds, a young, talented fighter pilot, William Adama (Luke Pasqualino), finds himself assigned to one of the most powerful Battlestars in the Colonial fleet: the Galactica. Full of ambition and in pursuit of the intense action that the Cylon war promises, Adama quickly find himself at odds with Coker (Ben Cotton), the battle-weary officer to whom he reports. With 47 days left in his tour of duty, Coker desires an end to battle just as much as Adama craves the start of it. Though they clash at first, the two men forge an unlikely bond when a routine mission turns dangerous and becomes a pivotal one for the desperate fleet.

Joining Pasqualino and Cotton in the cast is Lili Bordan, who will play Dr. Beka Kelly, a Ph.D. who worked for Graystone Industries that created the Cylon robots. Currently assigned to a secret military mission, Beka and Adama quickly establish a rapport.

Battlestar Galactica also has a history with Webisodes. Back in 2008, when the show was in one of its lost intra-season hiatuses, we got an aweome webisode series called ‘Face of the Enemy‘. Even earlier, back in 2007 we had the Razor Flashback webisodes, including one that serves as the touchstone for what Blood and Chrome is all about. Adama fighting in the first Cylon war.

We can hardly wait to see Blood and Chrome – and it’s hard to believe that SyFy did not go ahead and produce a full series.

Not that any of us really need more proof – but SYFY Channel has no interest in scifi.

SyFy has just CANCELLED the Battlestar Galactica Blood & Chrome show – before it even aired.

They’re keeping the pilot as a standalone, but no show.

that’s right! the Frakkers have FRAKED us BSG fans yet again.

This show was the only good thing coming to SyFy that we were excited about and they killed it.

FRAK YOU SYFY.
