V Is Brought Back To Life By ABC

Variety reports that ABC has given the go for a pilot based on the 1980s sci fi series V. For those that don’t remember or were too young to watch this classic, the show was about aliens landing on Earth pretending to have come to help mankind while a more sinister agenda is brewing behind their evil alien brains.

Just as in the original version the new adaptation, which was written by The 4400 co-creator/exec producer Scott Peters, will have mankind divided into two camps. Pro and contra alien. The new version will focus on Erica Evans, a Homeland Security agent, whose son immediately falls for the aliens, which causes tension within the family.

Scott Peters is executive producing the pilot with HDFilms principal Jason Hall.
