Speaking in an interview with BBC Radio 4’s Today programme, Scott said that both shows were in development: “We’re already into having written the pilot for Blade Runner and the bible, so we’re already presenting Blade Runner as a TV show, which will probably be the first 10 hours.”

He added, “And then Alien is a similar thing. Alien is now being written for pilot.”
