Syfy About To Greenlight New Series From GALACTICA Mastermind Ron Moore??
Deadline Hollywood reports that Syfy is about to order 13 episodes of “Helix,” a new project to be overseen by longtime “Star Trek” writer Ronald D. Moore, who went on to mastermind the Sci-Fi channel’s 21st century reboot of “Battlestar Galactica.”
The pilot was scripted by someone named Cameron Porsandeh.
Deadline describes the “Helix” premise:
... a team of scientists investigating a possible disease outbreak at an Arctic research facility who find themselves trying to protect the world from annihilation.
In 2009 Moore completed an early draft of what evolved into 2011’s “The Thing,” about a team of scientists at an Antarctic research facility who found themselves trying to protect the world from annihilation.
Moore, who got his start in TV on “Star Trek: The Next Generation” and “Star Trek: Deep Space Nine,” went to serve as showrunner on HBO’s “Carnivale” before he masterminded the 2003-2009 “Galactica” reboot. He also co-wrote the acclaimed feature “Star Trek: First Contact” and helped script George Lucas’ proposed live-action “Star Wars” TV series.
