Video: ABC's creepy 'V' remake

ABC entertainment president Steve McPherson says his network's remake of the 1980s miniseries "V"  could consist of four seasons, planned in advance, each with 13-22 episodes each. The show is planned for midseason.

Below are two first-look previews and based on these, my hopes for the show are up. We've seen alien invasion stories so many times before, the challenge is to bring something new.

The second video in particular is a nicely done, tense scene, with Scott Wolf (and hey, he still looks like him) playing a journalist landing an interview with the alien leader (played by Brazilian actress Morena Baccarin). Every reporter's dream/nightmare.

Clip 2: "We can't be seen in a negative light..."

In fact, it's not all together unlike interviewing a TV network executive.
