With news that Alphas has been cancelled, Syfy could be looking to get back into business with Ron Moore.
According to Deadline, Moore’s new series Helix is close to a 13-episode order from the cable outlet. The order would come without a pilot and would see the project go straight to series.
Helix, from Sony Pictures TV, where Moore is under an overall deal, is about a team of scientists investigating a possible disease outbreak at an Arctic research facility who find themselves trying to protect the world from annihilation. The project, which eyes a debut later this year, was written on spec by Cameron Porsandeh who serves as co-executive producer.
