      Twenty years after NBC's hit sci-fi miniseries "V" invaded the small
      screen, the network is bringing the aliens back with "V: The Second
      Generation," a three-hour telefilm from the original creator Kenneth
      Johnson. Johnson, who penned, directed and produced the mini, is set
      to write, direct and executive produce the sequel, which has been
      given a script commitment. The 1983 "V" (short for Visitors), which
      spawned a short-lived weekly series on NBC, was a sci-fi allegory of
      the Nazi takeover of Germany in the 1930s. It centered on the
      Visitors, aliens from a distant planet who'd come to Earth with the
      promise to solve the world's problems through their high technology,
      but after gaining control of the planet through subterfuge and media
      manipulation, began to methodically kill their enemies. A small group
      of humans, who discovered the Visitors' true plan -- to conquer the
      Earth and eat its population -- form a resistance and lead the fight
      against the invaders.
