Scott Peters

ABC has greenlit to a pilot for a remake of V, the 1980s NBC show about reptilian alien "visitors" disguised as humans who invade Earth, Variety reports.

Penned by The 4400 co-creator Scott Peters, the reboot will focus on Erica Evans, a Homeland Security agent whose son latches onto the sinister aliens. As in the original, the aliens claim to have benevolent motives for their visit — but don't.

The franchise's original creator, Kenneth Johnson, is not involved in the adaptation.

V debuted in 1983 as a miniseries and later spawned a one-season series.
