It was exprected, but it was kinda the last thread, the slightest faroff glimpse what a series of Lost Room could have been. It was fun to watch-

Re: Warhorse 13 cancelled


That show was a thorn in our side from the moment it became clear that it was the sigh fie channels high concept alternative to creating a Lost Room series. May it die and be forgotten.

quote:


Interview with Syfy President Dave Howe:

Q: The way The Lost Room ended, it seemed like there was talk about a TV spinoff. Whatever happened to that?
 
DH: That's a very good question actually because I haven't heard anything about The Lost Room for a while. I know we tried to develop it as a series but I think we struggled to close the deal on it.
Let me just - I'm just flicking through the development report now. Yeah, I don't think it's in development. No it's not. I think it was a concept. It's interesting actually. It was a concept that we really loved. And if I'm honest I think we've done it better in Warehouse 13. If you look at the concept of Warehouse 13which is objects with special powers I think Warehouse 13 does a does a better version of The Lost Room from a series perspective.

I think the challenge that we had with The Lost Room is it was very difficult as a concept even though we loved it to kind of market it in one sentence or less because it was somewhat complicated to just explain to everybody there was this kind of a missing room and a missing key etcetera, etcetera.

And the thing about the objects was that their arbitrary powers were also problematic. The fact that you picked up an alarm clock and you had no idea what it would actually do. I think the success of Warehouse 13 is we've tried to give all of the objects a real kind of mythology and a history that actually stacks up that makes some sense either historically or scientifically, etcetera.

And I think that's why Warehouse 13 works. And I think that's probably why The Lost Room didn't work for us. It was one of our lowest rated miniseries ever. And I think that's pretty much - I think answers your question.
