V upfront trailer from ABC gives look at new series
The upfront trailer for “V,” a new series coming from ABC, updates the 1980s series as mysterious Visitors come from space claiming to offer help. From the trailer, it looks like the series has lost a lot of the World War II occupied Europe metaphor, but it could be coming later. It looks interesting, if different from Kenneth Johnson’s original. I talked to Johnson last year after he wrote V: The Second Generation, and there was some hope then of continuing “V” in that form. However, given the success of reboots like “Battlestar Galactica” and “Star Trek,” making a fresh version of a classic series seems to be more popular now than working with previous continuities. (Though it should be noted that “Star Trek” does both, to some degree.) Morena Baccarin, Elizabeth Mitchell and Scott Wolf are among the show’s stars. The only bad news there is it seems to indicate we won’t see Mitchell’s Juliet much in the next season of “Lost.”
