By the 22nd of November 2021, Ridley Scott was able to report that the pilot for a Blade Runner series was near enough written and with that the 'bible', so they were presenting Blade Runner as a TV show.
It would presumable be the first 10 hours.
Alien's pilot was being written as well, and with that another 'bible', presenting the history of that world.
So if it was eight or ten hours of episodes of the series, all of that would have to be detailed in the 'bible'.
wasn't a final view about how long these series would go on for, but he
had produced The Good Wife for television which went on for sixteen
years, and this was followed by The Good Fight which was still running
- Ridley Scott: We're already wr… into having written the pilot for Blade Runner and the bible so we're already presenting Blade Runner as a TV show, which'll ru.. probably be the first 10 hours and then Alien is the s… similar thing. Alien is now being written for pilot. You have to also write out the history. If it's eight hours or ten hours of bible of what happens in those 10 hours, then if it goes on like ‘The Good Wife' is mine and 'The Good Fight’ is mine, and that's been going sixteen years can you believe it.
