The ill-fated series that never was BATTLESTAR GALACTICA: BLOOD & CHROME is finally getting its pilot episode released online in the form of 10 x 7-12 minute short episodes which will go live online friday via YouTube and on the SyFy channel.
Taking place 10 years after the first Cylon attack on Caprica and it follows a young William Adama as he is assigned to the BATTLESTAR GALACTICA.
This from INSIDE TV EW:
BSG: B&C is a prequel movie being presented as ten, 7-12-minute episodes on young-male-targeted entertainment company Machinima’s YouTube channel, called Machinima Prime. The first episode will be released on Friday, Nov. 9, with the remaining episodes rolled out over the next four weeks. In early 2013, the two-hour version ofB&C will air on Syfy, followed by the release of an unrated version on home video.
Such a three-tiered windowing release strategy (online, network and DVD, all within a few months) is considered unique for a TV series.
