Project From 'Battlestar Galactica' Producer Among Top Contenders for Series Order at Syfy Deadline

Syfy is closing in on pickups, with a top contender said to be a project from "Battlestar Galactica" developer and executive producer Ron Moore, reports Deadline.com.

The project is “Helix,” which is about scientists investigating a possible outbreak of disease at an Antarctic research facility.

Another top contender is said to be "The Almighty Johnsons," a version of a New Zealand fantasy series about a family of reincarnated Norse gods, the story notes.

Syfy is reportedly considering straight-to-series orders, bypassing the traditional pilot pickups, the story says.
