45183441 story Classic BBC Sci-fi Series Blake's 7 To Return On Syfy Channel 213 Posted by Soulskill on Tuesday April 09, 2013 @02:23PM from the what's-old-is-new dept. Zaiff Urgulbunger writes "According to the BBC, 'Cult classic sci-fi series Blake's 7 is to be remade for the Syfy network, it has been announced. FremantleMedia International said 13 hour-long episodes will be written by Heroes writer Joe Pokaski.' Here's hoping the special effects budget will be higher than for the original series! Also, I'm hoping that the Liberator is of similar design and includes Zen — the ships computer."
