V on TNT? Fans rally to save illegal aliens!

Movie News

With Warner’s ”V” being cancelled by ABC after 2 seasons and 23 episodes, fans have started a letter writing campaign to save the show by getting it picked up by TNT which is also a subsidiary of Time Warner.

www.ilanasvsite.com is spearheading this campaign named “Project Alice” :

“Project Alice’s goal has always been to get V renewed for a third season, no matter which network. Now that ABC has cancelled V, it’s time to continue our plea to Warner Bros. to shop V to other interested parties.”

With TNT giving Steven Spielberg’s ”Falling Skies” a two season commitment, this may prove to be the right fit to save ”V”. Let’s face it, sci-fi shows have rarely fared well on the Big 3 networks. But on other networks such as the CW, FOX and Sy FY, shows such as ”The X-Files”, ”Battlestar Galactica”, ”Buffy the Vampire Slayer”, ”Angel” and ”Smallville” found an audience and enjoyed successful runs.

“V” is a brand name and does have a loyal following and I believe that on basic cable has the elements to be successful.

With a creatively strong second season, ”V” original Marc Singer appearing on the season/series finale and show runner Scott Rosenbaum promising a more action-oriented third season, there is a strong case to save ”V”.

In “V:The Movie”  news, original ”V” mini-series writer/director Kenneth Johnson, who has been trying to get a big screen version of ”V” made for several years, reports on his website that efforts are “proceeding well and literally on a daily basis. Conversation are currently evolving with several serious funding sources and there is good reason of fans and supporters of V:The Movie to be optimistic.”

Johnson was originally trying to get ”V:The Second Generation” made which would pick up 20 years after the events of the original mini-series. Warner eventually decided that ”V” should be a remake and Johnson wrote a movie script. His ”V” script is not associated with the current ”V” series.
