Never Met a Zombi I Didn’t Like…

ABC releases TRAILER to its new take on classic series V

V posterBack in 1983 NBC aired one of the greatest SCI-FI related miniseries ever produced in V, a classic alien invasion story with multiple layers to its storyline. The highly rated and popular miniseries later spawned a follow-up miniseries and then a weekly TV series. ABC has brought it back with the new show airing mid 2010. Elizabeth Mitchell (Juliet on Lost) Scott Wolf (Party of Five) and Morena Baccarin (Serenity) will star. This really looks good and it’s on my list of must-see shows for next season. Take a LOOK

Here’s the complete V summary from ABC.com

V castToday, the world woke up to find spaceships over every major city. The Visitors claim to have come in peace, bringing gifts of medical miracles and technological breakthroughs. They promise to do no harm. They’re lying.

Most people believe the aliens have arrived just when we needed them most. We’re eager to embrace their generous offers of help but, while tracking a terrorist cell, Homeland Security agent Erica Evans stumbles upon something far more sinister. Erica discovers that the aliens have plans to infiltrate our governments and businesses, planting seeds for their plot to control mankind. Convincing anyone of the truth will be impossible because the Visitors have two powerful weapons. First, they’ve given people faith with their reassuring presence and gifts. Second, they’ve rallied our youth. Thousands of teens, including Erica’s son, have been recruited as ‘Peace Ambassadors’ but they’re actually serving as unwitting spies. When Erica gets thrust into the resistance movement, she’ll have to balance her covert activities with her job and her role as a mother, fighting to protect her son Tyler – even as he joins forces with the enemy.

From executive producer Scott Peters, Emmy-nominated creator of The 4400, comes a bold re-imagining of the sci-fi classic. Let the invasion begin.

The series is produced by HDFilms in association with Warner Bros. Television. Scott Peters is executive producer/writer and Steve Pearlman and Jace Hall are executive producers.

  1. Sorry I haven’t visited in a while – I can’t get excited about V – I liked the original mini-series and thought it was unfortunate when it ended up as yet another soap opera, dragging on and on, the first time. Aside from that, with the world’s current level of cynicism and mistrust, I think the plot line is past it’s day. Besides, now that I’ve watched the trailer – I don’t need to watch the show at all… why do they do that?

  2. I like Elizabeth Mitchell and Scott Wolf (RIP “The Nine”!), but I looooooooove Morena Baccarin! The show doesn’t look great, but I’ll definitely give it a chance because of the cast.
