"V" is Returning to Television

Posted: October 10th, 2008 by WorstPreviews.com Staff
"V" is Returning to TelevisionSubmit Comment
"V," the 1980s miniseries about alien lizards visiting Earth, will invade primetime once again. ABC is developing a new adaptation of the franchise — which spawned a second mini and TV spin-off — written by "The 4400" co-creator/exec producer Scott Peters, who began his career as a writer/producer on "The Outer Limits."

HDFilms principal Jace Hall, the former head of Warner Bros' videogame division who has worked on titles including "F.E.A.R.," will help expand "V" into other platforms, including gaming.

Peters, who earned two Emmy nominations for "The 4400," said he wasn't looking to do another sci-fi piece. But when Warner Bros TV approached him about reinventing "V," the producer said he couldn't resist.

"Whenever I mention 'V' to anybody, they still have a lot of good memories about the original movie and series," Peters said. "Everybody has that imagery of their uniforms, or the visitor eating a hamster. It's a science fiction icon and too good to pass up."

The original "V" served as an allegory for the Holocaust and Nazi Germany. Peters said he won’t duplicate that concept, except that the new "V" will still focus on what happens when the masses have blind faith in their leaders.

In this case, the new "V" will center on Erica Evans, a Homeland Security agent with an aimless son who's got problems. When the aliens arrive, her son gloms on to them — causing tension within the family. As in the original "V," several storylines will unfold simultaneously.

But even without the same storyline, the original "V's" bones will remain: As in the '80s version, the show will open with an enormous army of spaceships hovering over the world's major cities. The visitors say they've come to help Earth, but their motives are nefarious (in the original, they wanted to steal the world's water supply).

Oh god, please entertainment gods, protect this one. Why is the allegory for the Holocaust and Nazi Germany bad? Makes sense to me. Always did always has. I guess they feel they have to give it a change or people would just rent or buy the originals on DVD. Will someone please give me a complete V set remastered to perfection on Blu-ray already?

WOW.... I didn't see that coming out of right field!! and there going to make a game too? Well I hope both are good. It's ok to remake this one because know one has hardly heard of it. When I ask people have they heard of the Werewolf Tv show that came on Fox there like WTF???
