When NBC cleaned house to make room for new programming, newcomer “The Event” was one of the shows that got the ax.
Yet the creator of the sci-fi drama, Nick Wauters, held out hope that “The Event” wouldn’t be out of commission for long. "Alas #theevent will not be back on NBC next season but we r actively pursuing other avenues to keep the show alive," he tweeted. "Stay tuned for more info!"
It looks like his promise may come to pass: Deadline reports that Syfy is talking about running “The Event” as a miniseries.
Before anything happens, it sounds like the network is examining the numbers and figuring out if picking up the project makes financial sense. If it does get picked up, “The Event” could even get another season.
“Event” actor Ian Anthony Dale tweeted on Tuesday, “We are still working hard to find another home for #TheEvent,” before retweeting contact information for Syfy. Wauters has also tweeted news about the possible move to Syfy, “only 2 xpress excitement/hope that we'll find a new outlet 4 #theevent,” he said.
