Take this one with a whole salt lick, but Deadline is saying that The Event might find a home on SyFy after being cancelled on NBC. I confess that I don't have much love for The Event after watching the first few episodes; I tried to stay up to date via episode recaps, but they just got more and more convoluted as time went on. I watched a bit of the final episode, but nothing in it really grabbed me. It did have a pretty good ending to the season, though, so maybe that's enough to spur it on for one last attempt at glory on cable.
Deadline's saying that it wouldn't be a full series; a more likely occurrence would be for it to come back as a miniseries. Shifting series from network to cable has been done before, but it's pretty rare; your budgets are pretty limited on cable, and I'm guessing many of the roles would have to be recast. Plus there's the factor of the show failing pretty hard on network, and that's after they pushed it pretty broadly with promos. I'm sure SyFy would be happy to get a show that brought in four million viewers a week, but I doubt everyone would follow it from NBC. Still, stranger things have happened. I'm not sure if I've ever heard anyone on Screened have a good word for The Event, but if you're excited by this, let us know in the comments.
