Alicia Malone is a Film Reporter, TV Host, Producer, Writer, Editor, and all around movie geek. She developed her taste for film at a young age, spending many a heady Friday night pajama-clad at the video store, picking out her 7 films for 7 days for $7. Bargain! While at school she created a Film Club, electing herself President. Eventually the School Principal asked her not to get up in assembly to talk about movies anymore.

The “Battlestar Galactica” prequel series “Blood and Chrome” (whose script Clint reviewed back in the day) will not be going ahead – even after a teaser trailer put together for WonderCon was met with thunderous applause and excitement from attendees.

Due to the enormous costs of producing the series – which would tell of a young William Adama, the character Edward James Olmos played in “Galactica” – SyFy have opted not to go ahead with the show.

Mark Stern, programming head-honcho for SyFy, said there’s a possibility that “Blood and Chrome” may fit another medium – possibly as a web series. In addition, SyFy will screen the already produced pilot.

“Though the vision for “Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome” has evolved over the course of the past year, our enthusiasm for this ambitious project has not waned,” Stern said in a statement today. “We are actively pursuing it as was originally intended: a groundbreaking digital series that will launch to audiences beyond the scope of a television screen. The 90-minute pilot movie will air on Syfy in its entirety at a future date.”
