Short answer - no. The show was too expensive for network television. There is no way Syfy could pay for it short of canceling every other scripted drama they produce.

If you want an example of what happens when a small budget cable network picks up an abandoned big budget network property, I'll refer you to "Airwolf". USA network picked that up after CBS dropped it in the mid-eighties..

I'm still recovering from the mental trauma that resulted from watching that.

Vendikarr,
Are you an executive employee of the SyFy Channel, if so what is your title?

Annoyed58,
I thought Syfy Channel script writers did a good job after picking up "Sliders", except for killing off most of the main characters, and replacing them way too many times!
I just purchased the dvd series from Seasons 1-4, excluding Season 5 from Amazon for $33.58. On second thought, maybe your right!

I wish. I liked the show.

But the actors for that show are already in new projects.

I would think stargate would have gotten a boost much sooner than Terra Nova does.

 

 

.... And why is this under PrimEval?

@Slamscape, Terra nova was place in this topic because, their was no topic available for it! Dinosaurs were the common factor I used that were involved in both television series that I believed would interest fans. "Primeval" was renewed by the Syfy channel as the new series" Primeval: New World"
