ABC "V" mini-series remake delayed because it sucks (apparently)

According to VancouverFilm, Warner Bros has shut down production of their TV remake of the classic 80s alien invasion mini-series "V". But, it's only for two weeks, or so they say. Reports state that execs aren't happy with the quality of the scripts -- not something we're used to hearing from TV execs.

Apparently the break is to give writers time to improve the scripts. Two weeks? That's all it'll take? Really? If they dint get it right the first time, what makes WB think they can do it right in just two weeks?

Note to the head honchos at WB: better increase that special effects budget big time. Just sayin'.

The new production will star Lost's Elizabeth Mitchell, Party of Five's Scott Wolf (god help us) ), Firefly's Morena Baccarin and Morris Chestnut (who?). If all goes right (cough, cough) it's scheduled to air this fall.

Believe it or not, this is one rare time when I am looking forward to a remake. But I hate that it's on ABC. I'm still pissed at them for dropping Eli Stone and The Unusuals (best cop show in years).
