Deadline reports that, looking to build on the success of its TNT drama “Falling Skies,” Amblin TV is teeing off another alien drama, which just received a pilot order at ABC.
Titled “The Visitors,” the project is based on a Ray Bradbury short story called “Zero Hour.”
“‘The Visitors’ chronicles the race against the clock to defeat an unseen alien enemy out to destroy the world using our most precious resource against us.”
Amblin TV is co-producing with Dawn Olmstead’s Grady Girl. Olmstead found the short story and brought it to Amblin TV, which Dawn Parouse Olmsteaddeveloped it with writer Soo Hugh, who has worked on Amblin’s “The River” and “Under The Dome.”
