Re: SyFy demotees Blood & Chrome back to webisode series
Sanctuary was a Sci-Fi web series that was picked up as a full show, so it is not unprecedented. Highly unlikely though.
Quite right, I'm sorry.
Still, Sanctuary started out as a webisode series intended as a backdoor pilot...it wasn't demoted from an hour TV pilot.
...Blood & Chrome *had* a rough-cut pilot, and it didn't instill confidence in the network.
For the record, non-reality based scripted original programming SyFy Channel still produces are now:
- Being Human (USA version)
- Eureka (final season)
- Warehouse 13
Still, given how fluffy their line-up is, it's hard to say what particularly was disappointing to them. It could have been too gritty, rather than shitty.
If I'd spent my whole life learning how to play chess better than everyone else in the world, I could have been the world chess champion.
