You're reading it here first.
I can be first to exclusively confirm that M-Net Action (DStv 106) has snagged the broadcasting rights to V. M-Net Action bought the hugely buzzed about, brand new remake of the 1980's sci-fi show about disguised lizard-like aliens living on Earth with plans to take over mankind. Only 4 episodes of V have been produced and broadcast in America so far (I've watched them all) and all I can say . . . BRILLIANT!
V should start sometime in August on M-Net Action (DStv 106).
In the show the Visitors (hence the moniker ''V'') ''suddenly'' arrive Independence Day style in their huge space ships above the major cities of the world. (Meanwhile they've been here for decades).
I won't give anything away, but the first episode gives immediate payoffs in terms of plot and storyline and viewers will discover how the lizards aliens, disguised as humans are actually already living among us.
We meet the sceptical priest, the mom who is an FBI agent looking for terrorists, her son who will fall in love with a lizard girl, the TV journalist who has to decide whether he wants access or the truth to the new alien race and the couple who are getting engaged and are having a baby . . . but everything (everyone!) is not what they seem.
