Chris Hardwick’s Nerdist could be coming to TV: Syfy is developing a weekly half-hour series based on the popular podcast.

Nerdist News would cover the latest trends and updates in the worlds of science fiction and fantasy media, tech, and science, and will aim to have “the same tone and feel” as the podcast. 

The only hitch: Hardwick himself will not host the show, only executive produce. Ah well; could still be cool, right?
