Syfy gets Blake’s 7 remake from Martin Campbell

Terry Nation’s Blake’s 7 will be remade for Syfy channel in the US.

Syfy has signed up for Green Lantern director Martin Campbell’s Blake’s 7 remake, and the network will commit to a 13-episode season if it likes writer Joe Pokaski’s script, Deadline has revealed. A remake of the 1978 series has been on the cards for a long time, but this marks the first occasion that it has actually moved beyond the pitching stage. It’s nice that Syfy is circling a new drama rather than another tenuous reality show.
