The fortunes of Blood and Chrome, the prequel to the revamped Battlestar Galactica, have risen and fallen over the past couple years. Planned at various times as a TV movie, a possible pilot for a new BSG series, and a web series, Blood and Chrome was conceived as an action-oriented project with most of the footage shot against greenscreen, composited with CG reconstructions of BSG sets that were scanned before the end of the show’s fourth season. While the show was announced in late 2010, we still don’t really know what’s up with the plans to air the show at this point.
What we do know is that there is now a trailer for the story of a young William Adama as he fights in the first Cylon war. And while the trailer does nothing to tell us whether the script, acting or characters are any good, it looks very, very cool. Check it out below.
Update: Turns out the trailer wasn’t quite official and has been pulled. And Syfy confirmed to EW that while the network will give the pilot a TV airing in the future, at some point, the plans for Blood and Chrome are web-based at best. So no new TV series for now.
