ABC Orders Pilot For Remake Of 1980s Alien Mini-Series V
ABC is bringing back the ’80s as it tries to revive some of the popular films and television shows of the neon decade.
A pilot of the 1987 film The Witches of Eastwick is already on order and word is they’re also considering “an ’80s version of The Wonder Years…described as Fast Times at Ridgemont High meets The Ice Storm.”
Blindie is most excited about ABC’s recent order of a pilot for the 1983 alien miniseries V. Written by Scott Peters (The 4400), the remake will center around a female Homeland Security agent and will no doubt try to recapture the popularity of the original series with an advertising blitz, and some lizard babies.
As for the cast, we suggest Jason Momoa of the recently cancelled Stargate Atlantis and the mother of his two children Lisa Bonet who is already familiar a member of Science Fiction club with her role in Life on Mars.
