BBC Making Pilot Of New Alien Invasion Comedy, V Sign

As Dave prepare new episodes of the BBC-originated sci-fi sitcom Red Dwarf, Auntie is preparing another trip to that seldom visited sub genre with V Sign.

The show will be shot in Carrickfergus, Northern Ireland, and has a script by Steve Turner, writer of several kid’s shows. Beyond that, very little is known as yet though Broadcast give away a couple of plot elements. The lead characters, it seems, will be survivors of an alien invasion “trying to face off the universe’s least competent alien invasion force.”

There’s no commitment to screening the show as yet, but I can’t imagine the BBC can afford to get into piloting shows like this and not then slip them out on BBC Three or Four, what with the cuts and all – grumble grumble.

We could use some more comedy sci-fi, so fingers crossed for V Sign. More when we have it.
