New Battlestar Galactica Prequel Series Coming – to the Internet

Slice of Sci Fi reports that a new prequel series will join Caprica in depicting the events that took place before SyFy's groundbreaking Battlestar Galactica TV series.

But before you rev up your digital TV recorder, you should know that this series, called Blood and Chrome, will be an Internet video series of 10-minute episodes. The show will use digital backgrounds (think Star Wars prequels); the sets of Battlestar Galactica were reportedly scanned at the end of the show so they could be used in digital scenes in the future.

If Blood and Chrome is successful, it might spawn other online series of the same sort, and it might also be a "backdoor pilot" to a new Battlestar prequel TV series, according to Maureen Ryan at The Chicago Tribune.

Here's hoping.
