David Eick on ‘Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome’ And The Future of ‘BSG’ ...2-26-2013
CraveOnline: What are the plans to continue “Blood & Chrome?”
David Eick: Don’t know yet. I think they’re still crunching the results of the Machinima hits and the TV ratings and soon to come now are going to be the Blu-ray numbers. So I think they’re still gathering information but I know that they would very much like to do more and so would I under the right conditions, so we’ll see.
CraveOnline: Could it be a series rather than a standalone movie?
David Eick: That would be my hope but that’s not necessarily the only option.
Will there be a new ‘Battlestar Galactica’ TV show? David Eick on the strange journey of ‘Blood and Chrome’
The new "Battlestar Galactica" (BSG) prequel film “Blood & Chrome” is out on DVD and Blu-ray today. So far, the feature-length film has earned positive reviews, but its road to success has been bumpy to say the least, transitioning from potential series, to Web series, to TV movie and now going full circle to a potentially ongoing series.
“The metrics are invisible to me. I don’t know where the measuring stick is,” said "Blood & Chrome" Executive Producer David Eick to Yahoo News in a phone interview. “We have to see what the parameters are.” I also had a chance to ask Eick about some of BSG’s seemingly endless, and endlessly fascinating, trivia. But first, a look at what might be happening next in the beloved saga.

EXCLUSIVE: Lili Bordan Talks Battlestar Galactica: Blood and Chrome Blu-ray...2-15-2013
Here's what she had to say.
How much did you know about this massive franchise before stepping into this world?
Lili Bordán: Actually, I wasn't too familiar with the series. It had eluded me, somehow. I was in Europe for most of the time that the series was on the air. I had seen bits and pieces of the show in the 1970s with Richard Hatch, but mostly, I was exposed to the show after I started auditioning. That's when I really started watching the series. Then, finally, when we got to Vancouver, we all watched Caprica to get the back story we were going to work from. This is the first 10 years of the Cylon War. Loose space hadn't really been relegated to Cylon or human territory. It was guerilla warfare. It was really the darkest, bleakest time, I think, between the Cylons and humans.
Two Stars of 'Battlestar Galactica Blood & Chrome' Discuss the Movie and Whether Or Not It Could Become a Series...2-10-2013
Ever since the end of the critically acclaimed and beloved Battlestar Galactica, SyFy has struggled to bring a new property set in that universe. A prequel, Caprica, made it to only two seasons—and most of the second season was burned off in a single night.Battlestar Galactica Blood & Chrome was going to also be a prequel, but set closer to the original shoe’s timeline than Caprica was. It stars o as William Adama (played by Edward James Olmos in Battlestar Galatica) and Ben Cotton as Coker.It wasn’t picked up as a series, but it debuted as a two hour movie online on Machinima’s YouTube channel. Now, it makes its way to SyFy as a two hour movie tonight at 8 pm ET. It will also be out on DVD on February 19 and include footage not seen on SyFy or Machinima’s YouTube channel.Pasqualino and Cotton recently participated in a press conference call with reporters. Here’s some highlights. Pasqualino on if he spoke to Olmos about playing the character of Adama. “I was given Eddie's email address and we were kind of sending emails backwards and forward, but none of it was really about the work in terms of material and script and performances. More about just what's expected. You know, kind of the head to go into this whole thing with and, you know, just what to expect really. I kind of - I didn't really want -- not that I don't think Eddie's great;
Go behind the scenes with the stars of BSG: Blood & Chrome
If you've never gotten into any of the incarnations of Battlestar Galactica in the past, now's your chance, agreed Luke Pasqualino and Ben Cotton, the stars of Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome, which premieres on Syfy on Sunday at 8 p.m. ET. The two-hour movie, which began life as a 10-episode web series last November on Machinima.com, offers not only an accessible new story in the franchise, but also never before scenes not available online.
'Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome' actors discuss roles
Battlestar Galactica” returns to television on Sunday in the form of a new movie, “Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome.”
But don’t look for Edward James Olmos’ Admiral William Adama or any other familiar faces from the Peabody Award-winning 2004-2009 series. “Blood & Chrome” is a prequel film, set decades before the events depicted in the popular series.
Set during the 10th year of humanity’s first war with the robotic Cylons, Luke Pasqualino portrays young, eager-for-action Ensign William Adama, who is teamed with the battle weary Lt. Coker Fasjovik (Ben Cotton). It will air on SyFy at 8 p.m.
Speaking by telephone on Thursday, Pasqualino and Cotton said they had respect for the predecessor series, but did not delve too much into it in preparation for their roles.
A self-described “Battlestar virgin,” Pasqualino exchanged casual emails with Olmos and watched the failed 2010 prequel series “Caprica.”

As a new model for production Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome is a very interesting model, both from a production/virtual production standpoint and distribution.Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome is a prequel to the recent Battlestar Galactica series. Distribution of Blood & Chrome began as a 10-episode online series in conjunction with Machinima.com last November (finishing at the start of December), but it will also air as a TV movie in February 2013 on SyFy.

'Blood & Chrome' Comes To Syfy In February...1-1-2013
Is this the end of cable channel's Battlestar Galactica franchise?
Blood & Chrome," the second "Battlestar Galactica" prequel that had a more rocky life than the first prequel, will finally get some airtime on Syfy in February.But don't expect there to be much more than that.The project, originally designed as a Web series, but kicked up to a series pilot for Syfy just before the cancellation of the other prequel "Caprica," and then what languished on the shelf for more than a year, will debut on Syfy Feb. 10. Many fans, however, have already seen the broken pilot, in pieces at least. Syfy decided to debut the show as part of an arrangement with YouTube's Machinima Prime...
Was A Web Series Format The Right Choice For ‘Blood And Chrome’? 12-10-2012
Was the web series route the correct path for Blood and Chrome, or would it have been better suited for TV? Just for kicks, let’s compare it to The Plan, a BSG TV movie first shown on TV in 2010. The Plan was penned by Husbands writer Jane Espenson, so in a slightly different alternate universe it could have seen online release.As it was, The Plan hit SyFy in January 2010, and while its ratings are weirdly difficult to find, the BSG spinoff that followed it–Caprica–never garnered more than 1.6 million viewers, ...

Revealed: Which big BSG character inspired Blood & Chrome's Coker...12-8-2012
If Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome's Lieutenant Coker Fasjovik seems a touch familiar, it's because his DNA might just have a hint of a very significant character from Battlestar Galactica, according to executive producer David Eick and actor Ben Cotton, who plays the battle-weary Coker. The web series, which premiered the final two episodes of its 10 episodes on MachinimaPrime yesterday, follows a young William Adama (Luke Pasqualino) and his co-pilot Coker as they find themselves on a mysterious mission deep in Cylon territory.

Eick chatted with CNN about the show, along with Luke Pasqualino who plays William Adama on the series.Eick told CNN the show is not just for fans of the previous Battlestar Galactica shows.“I firmly believe that if you never saw an episode of Battlestar, you could plop right into this thing and completely get it and enjoy it,” he said.When asked if the show will possibly have ...
Battlestar Galactica: Blood and Chrome by Brian Young
Bryan Young: As you were preparing for the role, I mean, clearly you've made it your own and it's completely different from anything Edward James Olmos did. Did you go back and look at anything he did and try to incorporate it for yourself?
Luke Pasqualino: I actually didn't. I saw a couple of episodes, but after a bit of thought, I really wanted to stay away from watching Eddie [James Olmos]'s work. Not for any other reason. I think he's great, and he's a true gentleman. ...
Video: Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome Drops Us in Middle of Cylon War...11-22-2012
Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome plops viewers right in the middle of a sci-fi war story. Set 10 years into humans’ battle with the genocidal, robotic Cylons, the new web series bridges the gap between gritty hit Battlestar Galactica and its less successful prequel, Caprica, in more ways than one.“What we did with Battlestar Galactica involved raw, immediate, visceral, war drama — combat stories — along with philosophical, contemplative ruminations on what it means to be human,” says producer David Eick, who worked on all three series, in the exclusive behind-the-scenes video above. “Caprica focused almost exclusively on the latter; I think Blood & Chrome is going to focus much more on the former.”In the five-minute “making of” video above, Eick and others involved in Blood & Chrome talk about making the series, which is composed of episodic chapters ranging from 7 to 12 minutes long, all focusing on a young William Adama’s introduction to space war aboard the Galactica.
‘Battlestar Galactica’: The new, old Adama in ‘Blood & Chrome’
Luke Pasqualino’s British accent is in stark opposition to the gruff, gritty voice of Edward James Olmos, but both portray different sides of the complex character William Adama in the “Battlestar Galactica” franchise. Olmos’ “So Say We All” speech in the re-imagined “Battlestar” series (2004-2009) helped define the admiral as the wartime commander he turned out to be, but it is Pasqualino who will help....
The Other Idiot Box “BSG: Blood and Chrome” on YouTube
Americans are spending more time staring at iPads, iPhones, Android tablets and other computerized devices and less time watching actual televisions. Networks are well aware of this fact. They’ve been trying to exploit it for years, investing heavily in websites like Hulu.com and producing the occasional web-based mini-series to tide viewers over during the long, rerun-filled summer. Now, Syfy is making the unusual move of “premiering” the prequel to its much-loved space opera “Battlestar Galactica” on the Internet.To call the long-awaited “Battlestar Galactica: Blood and Chrome”
'Battlestar Galactica' prequel 'not intended for television'
Battlestar Galactica's David Eick has claimed that new prequel Blood & Chrome was never intended for television.
The producer told sciencefiction.com that Syfy's decision not to pick up the project for a full series should not be considered "some kind of rejection or failure"."It was originally developed as an online project," Eick insisted. "It was a little frustrating for me a few months ago when I saw the headlines that the Blood & Chrome project had somehow been rejected or was a failed pilot or wasn't ...

"Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome" is a new science-fiction drama from NBCUniversal premiering today on Machinima Primes YouTube channel for 10 episodes until February 2013 when Syfy, a division of NBCUniversal, is expected to televise the pilot and also offer it on DVD, Blue-Ray, On Demand, and digital download.

Blood & Chrome continues the tradition, adding Cylon robots, snake creatures, and more than 20 sets constructed entirely in LightWave 3D.
What's Next for Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome?
After a long and arduous journey, the first two webisodes of Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome are now finally available to watch on YouTube (via Machinima Prime). Of course, this was no easy task, as executive producer David Eick (Battlestar Galactica, Caprica) can attest. Speaking with us earlier today, Eick took the opportunity to fully explain the distribution process and how the BSG prequel webseries ended up where it did."This was originally developed as an online project, and I think there's a bit of a record to set straight," Eick began. "Blood & Chrome was never meant to be a traditional pilot,...
Battlestar Galactica: Blood and Chrome Blu-ray Release Date, New Trailer and Clip...Nov-8-2012
Battlestar Galactica: Blood and Chrome, the Syfy pilot for a Galactica prequel series that was not picked up, will begin its monthlong web debut via Machinima's Prime YouTube channel tomorrow. The uncut version won't make its debut until February 19, 2013, the release date for Battlestar Galactica: Blood and Chrome on Blu-ray and DVD. The Battlestar Galactica: Blood and Chrome Blu-ray edition will be presented in 1080p video and 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio. It will be unrated and run 1 hour 34 minutes. Unfortunately we do not know how long the edited version coming to Machinima is or I would be able to tell you how many minutes have been tacked on for home video. My guess is one or two at most. It doesn't look like Universal will be packing any bonus features into the Blu-ray release of Battlestar Galactica: Blood and Chrome. They will, however, include the pilot on DVD, digital copy and UltraViolet as well in the same package. In addition to the Battlestar Galactica: Blood and Chrome Blu-ray announcement....

Where the frak is Blood and Chrome? ...10-6-2012
It’s not an unusual event to find me periodically scanning the Net for news on the latest Syfy project, Battlestar Galactica: Blood and Chrome. The reasoning is simplicity itself. Battlestar Galactica, whether you’re a science fiction fan or not, has regularly and rightly been acknowledged as one of the best TV series of the last ten years. Investigating subjects such as terrorism, genocide, religious jihads, parenticide, love, betrayal and beating Star Trek to the punch by having some of its most interesting characters be openly gay (though never making their sexuality the point of an episode or the show), it raised the bar not only for shows of the same genre, but all mainstream dramas. Think Black Hawk Down crossed with 2001 and you’re almost there. It was gritty, brutal, tense, heart-rending and on rare occasion, hilarious.
Syfy Officially Fraks 'Blood & Chrome' Out Of Series Pickup
It certainly shouldn't be a surprise since news outlets have been writing its obituary since August, but Syfy has made it almost official: There will be no "Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome" series.At least not on television.Deadline.com is reporting that Syfy is moving "Blood & Chrome"
Syfy still has no plans to make Battlestar Galactica: Blood and Chrome into a TV show
You've seen the slick-as-hell trailer for Battlestar Galactica's Cylon War prequel Blood and Chrome. But even though the trailer has revived the world's fervor for frakking toasters, it didn't change Syfy's postion on demoting Blood And Chrome to the status of webseries. But there's a silver lining!According to the President of Syfy's original content, Mark Stern:
Battlestar Galactica: Blood And Chrome Won't Be A TV Series, But There's Hope...
I know there were a lot of people who liked Syfy’s Caprica, and really took to the Battlestar Galactica prequel, but I wasn’t among them. I gave it a shot, but it didn’t capture my interest in the way the Syfy drama/reboot did. From the unauthorized trailer for the newer prequel in the works, Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome looks like it leans more toward what many of us came to know and love from BSG,
Totally Badass Trailer for Battlestar Galactica’s Cylon War Prequel, Blood and Chrome
Check out the amazing trailer for the new Battlestar Galactica prequel, Blood and Chrome. Following a young William Adama fighting in the first Cylon War. Last we heard, this pilot was going to be demoted to a webseries, instead of being aired as a TV movie. But this trailer is too amazing to be relegated to the internet — put this pilot on TV now, Syfy!
How Battlestar Galactica Might Work on HBO
Today we’re excited to publish a guest post from Hans Ericsson, a freelance writer who enjoys several HBO programs on a regular basis but also would love to see the Battlestar Galactica series on his favorite network as well! Just to clarify this is not a news article confirming the existence or even the rumors of a BSG series on HBO. It is simply Hans’ own speculation on how and why that would work! Sorry BSG fans. Hans enjoys traveling and being outdoors with his dog in his spare time. As far as he knows, he is not a Cylon.

Reader Mailbag: Is Syfy Going To Cancel Sanctuary?
We recently posted an exclusive story on that status of Syfy’s new Battlestar Galactica spin-off Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome. In that post we explained that the delivery of the pilot had been delayed by the extensive CGI the project required as it was shot almost entirely on green screen.Since running that story we have received a lot of messages, tweets and emails from fans of Sanctuary who were concerned by one sentence in that news story. The one sentence that caused so much consternation was as follows:
Exclusive: Massive CGI Delaying Delivery Of Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome Pilot
Exclusive: I’ve been told that the delivery of the producers cut of Syfy’s two hour Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome pilot had been delayed by the “huge” amount of CGI/VFX the project required. That said, sources at Syfy have told me that a number of executives have seen the rough cut (sans CGI) and have all been “very impressed” with it. What does this mean for a series pick up though? Well it would seem that the huge amount...
Battlestar Galactica: Blood and Chrome may get demoted back to being a webseries
No new Battlestar Galactica on your television screens? That's a possibility, according to AOL TV's Maureen Ryan. Syfy is considering turning its latest Battlestar Galactica prequel, Blood and Chrome, back into a webseries.
When Blood and Chrome was originally commissioned, back in July 2010, the plan was for it to be a webseries of nine or ten episodes of around 10 minutes each, shot in greenscreen.
New Syfy Battlestar Series Could Be Presented In 3-D
There will be a lot more blood and guts in the new "Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome," but it might be a lot more real than you could imagine.Lili Bordan, who plays Graystone Industries employee Dr. Becca Kelly, said there was talk that the new series will take the "Avatar" route even further, and be presented three-dimensionally."They were using three cameras, and I'm not sure ... I should know if it was 3-D," Bordan said. "There were talks of it being in 3-D."Bordan shared that bit of news during a "Battlestar Galactica" panel at San Diego Comic-Con that included actor Richard Hatch, director Michael Nankin and science advisor Kevin Grazier. Bordan was the lone representative from "Blood & Chrome,"
First Glimpse of Battlestar Galactica: Blood and Chrome Revealed
After the recent cancellation of Caprica, many Battlestar Galactica fans were left scratching their head trying to figure out how one of the best Sci Fi shows in history had gone so terribly wrong with it’s prequel series. Even with the Caprica disappointment, fans of the Galactica found themselves jonesing like a junkie anxious for another fix.
Good news came with the announcement that Battlestar Galactica: Blood and Chrome would be filmed as a pilot for the SciFi channel. Yes, I know they don’t spell it that way anymore but I can’t bring myself to type their lame ass designation since the change. Blood and Chrome will tell the story of a young William Adama and is set during the first Cylon War. This premise will be more reminiscent of what Battlestar Galactica fans were accustomed and based on that alone it will probably fall closer to the mark then Caprica managed to.
New Character Ties Blood & Chrome to Caprica
Production is officially underway in Vancouver for the new Syfy BSG prequel series, Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome. And with that news, Syfy has also announced a new character on the show who will be joining Luke Pasqualino's young fresh-faced William Adama and Ben Cotton's older, battle-weary Cylon War vet, Coker.
Actress Lili Bordan will play Dr. Beka Kelly: "A Ph.D. who worked for Graystone Industries that created the Cylon robots." Currently assigned to a secret military mission, Beka and Adama quickly establish a rapport."

'Battlestar Galactica: Blood & Chrome' stars revealed: Here's the new Adama
Pasqualino will star as the young, talented fighter pilot William Adama, a recent Academy graduate who finds himself assigned to the newest Battlestar in the Colonial fleet: the Galactica. Full of ambition and in pursuit of the intense action that the Cylon war promises, Adama quickly finds himself at odds with Coker (Cotton), the battle-weary officer to whom he reports. With 45 days left in his tour of duty, Coker desires an end to battle just as much as Adama craves the start of it. Though they clash at first, the two men forge an unlikely bond when a routine mission turns dangerous and becomes a pivotal one for the desperate fleet.

What to expect from Battlestar Galactica prequel Blood and Chrome
So the arc of Blood and Chrome is the first mission for a young William Adama, a green pilot just out of training. Over the course of his first week on the job, Adama loses his innocence and discovers that things in war are more complicated than he'd believed when he signed up. The story starts at the end, with the battle-haunted William Adama looking up in a stained Colonial uniform under a tattered parka, with a "thousand yard stare,"
New Battlestar Galactica Prequel Begins Search For Lead Roles.
According to TV Guide, Adama is described as a cocky and fearless jock in his early to mid-20s, akin to Tom Cruise’s character in Top Gun. His risk-taking brings him into conflict with the more seasoned and cynical Electronic Countermeasures Officer Coker Fasjovik, a man in his late 20s to mid-30s who’s supposed to be heading for home after just 45 days of fighting.
As we’ve previously reported, there’s also an enigmatic software genius named Beka Kelly, whom TV Guide describes as having “a treasonous agenda that could cost them their lives as they set out on what proves to be a confusing and challenging mission.”
The artwork itself was fascinating (especially the Hoth battle against the Cython) but what got me thinking more wasn’t the article itself but instead the comments posted against it. The first glimpse – with heavy emphasis on the word “glimpse” – of the “Battlestar Galactica” prequel series has instantly sparked debate and speculation on the creative directions that the series will take.Caught in the crossfire of the discussions are “Caprica” and “Stargate: Universe,” both of which were recently (and unjustly) canceled by Syfy
