ABC, which is known to be generous in giving a lengthy sneak peek to its new shows, has given out the one for "V". A remake of 1983 sci fi series, "V" is the latest new show that the Alphabet will debut this Fall. It stars Elizabeth Mitchell, Morena Baccarin, Morris Chestnut and Joel Gretsch among others.
Generally, "V" is a reference to the Visitors aka aliens who suddenly pop up on Earth one morning with the promise to no harm and medical as well as technological breakthroughs for Earthlings. The catch is, they are lying.
Homeland Security agent Erica Evans finds out that the aliens are plotting a scheme to infiltrate the governments and take control of mankind. But convincing the others that there are sinister plans undergoing would not be so easy because the aliens have been capturing the humans' trust with their gifts.
ABC will air the pilot on November 3 and follow it up with three others that month. The remaining episodes will resume in March 2010 after the Winter Olympics because ABC wants to make it more like an event.
