Syfy is once again trying a weekly talk show.

The NBCUniversal network is developing a linear TV version of Nerdist News, the YouTube series, with Chris Hardwick, host of AMC's Talking Dead and Comedy Central's @Midnight. The weekly half-hour series would be executive produced by Hardwick and his Nerdist Industries partner, Brandon Monk.

The Syfy version will have a similar feel as the YouTube series, celebrating nerd culture and the latest trends and news in sci-fi, fantasy, media, tech and science.
