It appears, from this post on TV By The Numbers that both Netflix and Syfy aren't interested in showing The Event. Now, in my opinion, Netflix, while innovative and kind of cool, seemed like a bit of a stretch, since they haven't shown any episodes there yet, and I would guess costs for the show would be higher than some less ambitious new show. Syfy, on the other hand... it's a perfect fit... at least you'd think it would be.
I'll add more to this post later... but for now, I just wanted to give you the firstname.lastname@example.org email address. We should ALL email them, if you haven't already done so!
