The EventUPDATE: Craig Engler of Syfy took to Twitter and dispelled the rumors.

"To answer some questions I've been getting," he tweeted, "at this time we have no plans to pick up The Event."

Previously: 'The Event' lives on!? Maybe, according to reports.

The canceled NBC series may have found a second life, and new home on NBC's sister network, Syfy.

Deadline is reporting creator Nick Wauters and executive producer Steve Stark are in talks with Syfy to bring the alien drama to the network as a miniseries. Given that NBC and Syfy are all under the NBC Universal umbrella, the deal could take shape rather quickly.

However, the players involved have to deal with going from a broadcast series budget to that of a cable miniseries. Financial constraints could prevent this event from ever taking place.

Rescuing a popular, canceled broadcast show is not totally out of the norm. TNT did it with 'Southland' and and NBC and DirecTV struck a deal that kept 'Friday Night Lights' around for two seasons longer than if it had just stayed on the Peacock network.

Syfy is also reportedly looking at Fox's discarded 'Locke & Key,' pilot, but no official talks have begun, the report says.
