Syfy, a corporate sibling of NBC, is in talks to pick up a canceled NBC drama series, reports Deadline.com. The program is the alien show “The Event.”
While both networks are owned by NBCUniversal, migrating a broadcast program to a cable network isn’t easy, the story notes. Discussions are ongoing to examine whether it makes financial sense for the series to continue on Syfy.
It’s possible that Syfy will pick up "The Event" as a miniseries, with the cable network possibly airing another season of the show if the miniseries performs well, the article says.
