They're baaaaack...

I had heard ABC had plans to revive the old V franchise. I had not heard that it had been greenlit and produced. They have a page on their fall preview section about it, including the trailer shown at the upfront presentation to the press. The cast includes Everwood and Party of Five's Scott Wolf in the Mike Donovan-ish role, and Firefly's Morena Baccarin in the John-ish role. The upfront trailer is also on YouTube with a couple of clips from the pilot.

This is not a remake of the original miniseries nor series, not even a reboot in the same vein as Battlestar Galactica or Star Trek. Warner Brothers hired The 4400's Scott Peters to write and develop using the original broad concepts but not the characters or storylines. (Original NBC miniseries creator Kenneth Johnson is not involved in this production.) It appears they're still coming for the water, and they're still reptiles under prosthetic human skin.
