Ilana's "V" Celebrity Mailing List I HEARD FROM KEN JOHNSON!

NEW - 01/29/05 - Heard from KEN JOHNSON!
Hi Ilana...

Okay, so you know that my original plan was to do a sequel that would pick up the story 20 years later. NBC bought it, I wrote it, and after 18 months of going around and around, they thought it would be cool to first do a remake of the original.

Not my favorite idea, and after four more months of discussion and negotiation, I finally closed a deal with NBC yesterday to create a treatment for a remake.

I've fashioned a story which I'll deliver shortly that maintains the integrity and thematic essence of my original themes and characters while updating it to address current lifestyles and issues facing society today.

The World War Two references have been replaced by much more recent incidents from the dark side of humanity. This has allowed me to sustain the underlying power of historic resonance that made the original so compelling and so well-received by critics and audiences alike.

Could that lead to the sequel being done as a follow up? ....Gee, I sure hope so. Stay tuned.

Thanks for caring.

Today NBC gave me the go-ahead-to-script for the 4-hour V remake, based on my new story.

Hopefully they'll like the finished screenplay.

Hopefully Warners will then be able to make an appropriate deal for production.

Only then, hopefully, might I actually be able to say Action.

And in a perfect world it will get high enough ratings to warrant a sequel. Hmmm. Wonder where I can find one?

Best... Kenny"

NEW - 08/3/05 - Jolene Sugarbaker alerted us to a website stating that V: The Remake is no longer. Click HERE. In response to ilana's inquiry regarding this, KEN JOHNSON responded: NBC is still stalled, but there has been no formal announcement one way or the other. We have been and are exploring other options." Let's hope for the best! WRITE IN TO THE ADDRESS listed in the above V:TSG Campaign!!

Blogger Joseph Ares-Berziga said...

NEW - 08/4/05 - This just in from KEN JOHNSON:
"The latest on the V situation is this: NBC has again stalled out. Partly because they were "worried that there was suddenly too much episodic sci-fi coming on this fall." Somehow they don't compute that V wouldn't be on until next year, wouldn't be constrained by the limited budget of an episodic, is a huge Brand Name with an enormous fan base, and will be around long after the new entries have probably faded away.

And if any of the new entries are at all successful, gee, doesn't that indicate a public appetite for such shows? Warners and I can't fathom NBC's thinking, although part of it likely has to do with their calamitous descent to Number Four and the loss of a billion dollars in ad revenue.

It's ironic, because NBC was at the bottom of the barrel when I did V originally. Brandon Tartikoff told me V was one of the key programming triumphs that helped turn the network around.

Ah, Hollywood.

The good news is that although NBC has relegated it to a back burner for now, we have strong interest from at least one other network, and there's even some interest in doing the sequel as a feature.

Continue to have patience and hold good thoughts.

NEW - 10/02/05 - From KEN JOHNSON:

ABC is "seriously considering" the remake version and NBC may be reconsidering.

All that and sixty cents...

Blogger Joseph Ares-Berziga said...

Re: Any new news on V The Remake or V The Second Generation?

what about CBS airing V or UPN or FOX?

Dear Joseph...

CBS isn't interested. UPN and Fox have no movie night and avoid mini-series. ABC has expressed "serious interest" and will let us know in January.

Thanks for caring.

NEW - 12/24/05 - MARIN MAY sent Kylee Jean (KJ) the most fantastic "birth" gift! Thank you for the bouncer, Marin! Her note read: "Dearest Ilana and Baby KJ, May this bouncer bring you both hours of fun and peace! Congratulations on your new journey and Happy Hanukah! Love, Marin."

NEW - 12/24/05 - Heard from KEN JOHNSON:regarding his website:
Dear Ilana...

I decided the photos -- particularly of the prep and rehearsal -- had been languising on my shelf for too long. It was cathartic and invigorating to go through them all and see so many dear friends, several of whom are gone, but many of whom haven't changed a bit from those glory days. It brought warmth to my heart and a flurry of smiles to my face.

I also called several of them just to catch back up. And they all want to be involved if I can ever get V moving forward again.

Best to you for Christmas and the New Year.

Re: Congratulations on your Awesome Offical Website and have a Blessed and Me...

Dear Joseph...

Thanks for your note about my hew site.

Though I supervised the writing of the 6-hour sequel,
I left Warners over creative differences before it was
produced. To this day I have never seen it, except for
one minute by accident -- in which I saw them make
every wrong choice possible, so I knew I'd never
survive watching the entire thing. I have no pictures
of the Star Child -- nor do I want any. She wasn't the
original character we wrote at all.

Thanks again for taking the time to write. It's
wonderful to hear that V captured your imagination.

V The Second Generation News Update
From KJ Site

Update: 10/2/06

Many people are naturally wondering why getting the new V sequel made into
a book or mini-series could possibly take so long -- unfortunately it's the
nature of the business these days.

Warner's Legal Department is trying to get the complicated domestic license
deal closed on the novel and they assure me it will happen within the month.
We are also beginning to seek a sale for the foreign rights to the novel.

Warner Home Video is working diligently to help cobble together the
necessary nineteen million dollar funding for the mini-series. Hopefully in this
