Syfy Orders 13 Episodes Of HELIX, From GALACTICA Mastermind Ronald D. Moore!!
Syfy has ordered up 13 episodes of “Helix,” a new sci-fi series to be overseen by Ronald D. Moore, who masterminded the SciFi Channel’s 21st century reboot of “Battlestar Galactica.
The “Helix” pilot, scripted by someone named Cameron Porsandeh, follows a team of scientists 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.
Syfy expects to start airing “Helix” before the end of the year.
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.
