Besides being "the other guy" behind SCIFI's popular 4400 series, Scott Peters was also behind the short lived V spin off show that was produced after Kenneth Johnson's kick ass original mini-series ended with "The Final Battle." It was short lived because it basically sucked and couldn't hold a candle to the production value and scope of the original. Now, Variety is reporting that Peters wants to get back into the V business with ABC, and the two parties are putting V into development.

"The new V will center on Erica Evans, a Homeland Security agent with an aimless son who's got problems. When the aliens arrive, her son gloms on to them, causing tension within the family. As in the original V, several storylines will unfold simultaneously. As in the '80s version, the show will open with an enormous army of spaceships hovering over the world's major cities. "

Where is Kenneth Johnson, the original V creator in all this? The short answer is, nowhere. Despite his efforts to get V back onto either the big or small screen, his vision is being passed over for Peters'.
