V comming back to television

ABC has ordered a pilot for V, the show was last on the air in 1985. I haven't seen much about the new pilot, and only watched the V miniseries, but this seems like part of a trend.
With the success of Battlestar Galactica people are considering the possibility of bringing back updated versions of old shows. V is certainly a prime candidate. It lasted only 19 episodes but is still in the cultural landscape, something that some shows which have lasted far longer can't claim.
For anyone who doesn't know, V stands for visitor and the show is about humans fighting off an alien invasion.
There is still a long path to hoe before this show makes it to Television screens, but a pilot means that the idea is out there and that is something for fans of V.
