HELIX: Ron Moore & Syfy Team-Up For New Series

It looks like Syfy and Ronald D. Moore (whose genre credits include several Star Trek television series and feature films; Roswell, Carnivale and the reimagining of Battlestar Galactica) will be collaborating again on a new sci-fi thriller, Helix.

Syfy is giving a 13-episode greenlight to Helix (working title), its newest original scripted series for 2013, it was announced today by Mark Stern, President of Original Content, Syfy and Co-Head Original Content, Universal Cable Productions. Helix is Executive Produced by Ronald D. Moore (Battlestar Galactica), Lynda Obst (Sleepless in Seattle, Contact), Steven Maeda (Lost, CSI: Miami, The X-Files) and Cameron Porsandeh, who wrote the pilot, will serve as Co-Executive Producer. The series will be produced by Sony Pictures Television.

Helix is an intense thriller about a team of scientists from the Centers for Disease Control who travel to a high-tech research facility in the Arctic to investigate a possible disease outbreak, only to find themselves pulled into a terrifying life-and-death struggle that holds the key to mankind’s salvation or total annihilation.

“With its well-drawn characters, taut drama, and incredible production team, we couldn’t be more excited to see this intense thrill-ride of a series come to life,” said Mark Stern

Helix is expected to begin production early in 2013 to debut later this year.

Nope, refuse to watch. If its good it will be cancled before the third season, so why bother.

Hey wasn't Ron Moore a black guy?

It will probably be ground breaking and one of the best things on television. Expect SyFy (HA!) to cancel it after three seasons, forcing a rushed ending on us.

3 episodes before it ties into a battlestar prequel.

I love Ron Moore, this sounds similar to that show about a pandemic JMS was working on for ABC. I would rather Moore ditch Sony who have done him no favors and move over to ABC and work on the Star Wars tv show were his talents would be better served.
