Nobody does aliens quite like Steven Spielberg’s Amblin Entertainment, and the TV branch of the company is once again headed into extraterrestrial territory with “The Visitors.” Read on, earthlings!
As per Deadline, ABC has just ordered up a pilot episode of the TV drama, which is based on a Ray Bradbury short story called “Zero Hour.”
Amblin TV is co-producing with Dawn Olmstead’s Grady Girl. Olmstead found the short story and brought it to Amblin TV, which developed it with writer Soo Hugh, who has worked on Amblin’s “The River” and “Under The Dome.”
“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.
ABC Studios is producing. Olmstead and Hugh are exec producing along with Amblin’s Darryl Frank, Justin Falvey, and Steven Spielberg.
