by Bill Valentine, October 10th, 2008

The 1980s hit mini series “V” about alien lizards who invade earth and eat the human population will be returning to TV screens as ABC is currently developing a remake if the sci-fi classic.

Scott Peters, co-creator and producer of “The 4400” will executive produce the project. Mr. Peters had previously said he wasn’t interested in doing another sci-fi series after the cancellation of “4400” quickly changes his mind when he was approached with “V”, “Whenever I mention ‘V’ to anybody, they still have a lot of good memories about the original movie and series,” Mr. Peters said. “Everybody has that imagery of their uniforms, or the visitor eating a hamster. It’s a science fiction icon and too good to pass up.”

Warner Bros. TV, the production company of the original series is also onboard for the remake though original “V” writer-producer-director Kenneth Johnson will not be involved in the new version.

No word on a production start date or premiere date as yet.
