Welcome back, my 80s-permed alien friends. ABC is bringing back the lizard-alien mini-series V, hooray! The 4400 creator and producer Scott Peters revealed to the trades that the aliens are back and that there may be a video game on the way too. But more importantly, will they bring back the jumpsuits and fantastic 80s sunglasses?Even though Peters was hesitant to do another scifi project, he couldn't resist remaking V when Warner Brother's approached him, and who could blame him this show is too ridiculous not to redo. As opposed to following the Nazi Germany metaphor in the original V, Peters explained that this V will show 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.
Jace Hall, former head of the WB, "will help expand V into other platforms, including gaming." Just, please, no MMO. Peters also promises tons of spaceships and other soon-to-be made toys. Throw in another alien birth, and you've got me hook, line and sinker. [Variety]
