Battlestar Galactica revamp mastermind Ron Moore has one show, Helix, on the air now, and another premiering later this year. The upcoming one is Outlander, which adapts Diana Gabaldon‘s series of novels about World War II nurse Claire Randall (Caitriona Balfe) who finds herself bounced back in time to 18th century Scotland. It’s a bit like Brigadoon, but with a more modern air of romance and violence. A new Outlander trailer has hit, and you can get a taste of the Starz show below. Read More »

Helix, the new show from Ron Moore (Battlestar Galactica) has been previewed in a series of atmospheric and ominous teasers. But it’s the main print ad (above), also seen around LA on giant billboards, that has really caught my attention. (Nothing like staring at an exploding head while you’re stuck in traffic.) Now, with just under a week to go before the show premieres, SyFy has put the first fifteen minutes online, so you can preview the beginning of the show’s disastrous situation in the Arctic.

Battlestar Galactica revival mastermind Ron Moore has a new sci-fi show coming in 2014. Helix follows a group from the Centers for Disease Control that travels to the Arctic to research the outbreak of a disease. There, they find that things are really much worse and more life-threatening than they thought. The cast is led by Billy Campbell (Once and Again) and Hiroyuki Sanada (Revenge, Lost).
It’s been a couple of months since we posted the first teaser for Helix, but a few new videos showed up this week. In fact, there are quite a few, which tease tone and horror more than specific plot points, and we’ve got them all below. Read More »

Ever since Ron Moore chose to end his successful reboot of Battlestar Galactica he’s been doing his best to get another series on television. He had ocean and magic shows, The McCulloch and 17th Precinct, set up at NBC and a remake of Wild Wild West in development at CBS. Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like any of them are going to make it to network. Deadline is reporting that, unfazed, Moore has just sold a western pitch called Hangtown to ABC. It’s the latest show in the Western genre – a genre that hasn’t fared too well on the big screen in recent years – to gain traction on the small screen. Read what it’s about and more after the jump.

The men who helped to create such popular properties as Lost, The Dark Knight, Battlestar Galactica and Heroes are just a few of the people with brand new shows currently awaiting the executioner’s axe. The J.J. Abrams-produced show Alcatraz, Jonah Nolan‘s Person of Interest, Ronald Moore‘s 17th Precinct and Tim Kring‘s Touch are four out of dozens of pilots whose fates will be decided this month as the networks get ready to announce their fall schedules from May 16-19 at New York upfronts. And while it would be easy to assume anything these guys touch would most certainly make it to our television screens, Deadline’s sources say that some might not. Read more about the buzz on all those shows, as well as a ton of other upcoming pilots you have been anticipating (Locke & Key, Charlie’s Angels, Wonder Woman, etc), after the jump. Read More »
With his Battlestar Galactica prequel Caprica recently canceled in favor of a more action packed spin-off, Ron Moore – the brain child behind the successful 2004 re-imagining of Galactica – now finds himself showless. Or does he? It seems Moore might be leaving space in favor of both the seven seas and the Old West. Moore just sold an action adventure series called The McCulloch to NBC; it centers on a fictional Coast Guard cutter that travels around the world. He’s also one of two producers attached to a remake of the 1960s show The Wild Wild West which, though it was rumored before, is now being set up at CBS. Read more about both after the jump.
