ABC Bets On A Remake Of V

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.
