I would like to point out that this show was created by Cameron Porsandeh - who also wrote the pilot - and that Steven Maeda serves as the showrunner for Helix
. Maeda has been a co-executive producer for Lost
and an executive story editor for The X-Files
. Which perhaps best indicates where this show could be going.
While Ron Moore has a bit of an input in the show's creative process he doesn't take any front-seat position like he did with nuBSG or other shows. It's obviously promoted as Ron Moore show because he's the biggest name attached to the project. Just like Almost Human
is a "J.J. Abrams show" and seaQuest DSV
or Falling Skies
were "Steven Spielberg shows".
