ABC is developing a new adaptation of the classic 1980’s sci-fi miniseries “V” reports Variety.
Much like the ’80s version, the show will open with an enormous army of spaceships hovering over the world’s major cities.
The human-like Visitors’ (who’re actually reptilian underneath) say they’ve come to help Earth, but their motives are nefarious.
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 however several storylines will unfold simultaneously.
“V” spawned a second miniseries and a short-lived TV spin-off series.
