We haven’t heard or seen a whole lot from Ronald D. Moore since Battlestar Galactica went off the air in 2009. Spinoff series Caprica had a rocky 17-episode run in 2010 before cancellation and he’s been involved with various other projects, but nothing has really taken off. But with a pair of new series on the way, Moore is looking to make 2014 a big year.
One of the two new shows he has on the way is titled Helix and, just like BSG, it will air on Syfy. You can read a synopsis of the show and check out the trailer below.
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 may hold the key to mankindâ€™s salvation or total annihilation. However, the lethal threat is just the tip of the iceberg, and as the virus evolves, the chilling truth begins to unravel.
The second show Moore has on the way is an adaptation of the Outlander book series that’s coming to Starz.
Helix will premiere on January 10, 2014.
