Ron Moore (Battlestar Galactica, Caprica) has finalized the deal to bring 13 episodes of his dark thriller Helix to SyFy later this year. I have to say that when I first saw this news I got excited about seeing a series about Raptor pilot Helo . . . then I figured out I read it wrong. Word about Moore’s new project first started to spread earlier this year and fans hoped to see the deal go through.
Helix is a story about:
A team of scientists investigating a possible disease outbreak at an Arctic research facility who find themselves trying to protect the world from annihilation.
SyFy‘s President of Original Content Mark Stern said:
“With its well-drawn characters, taut drama, and incredible production team, we couldn’t be more excited to see this intense thrill-ride of a series come to life.”
Moore is great at creating tension in a series and although many were disappointed in the Battlestar Galactica series ending, the man knows how to create gripping television. What do you think? will you be tuning in to check out Moore’s latest project when it hits the small screen?
