v.jpgABC is developing a new project, “The Return,” which comes from Rene Echevarria and Gerg Berlanti. Echevarria has produced and written for several sci-fi shows (“Star Trek: DS9”, “The 4400” and “Dark Angel”) so it should come as no surprise that “The Return” is also a sci-fi show. Specifically, it’s about what happens when some aliens come to Earth for a “how you doing.” Berlanti, meanwhile, is already stretched thin at ABC, as he’s an exec-producer on “Eli Stone,” “Dirty Sexy Money” and “Brothers & Sisters.” I’m not sure what his role on the show means, as I can’t see them trying to go the campy way his other shows go.

But more importantly, I wasn’t kidding around — fuck a new show about aliens. Just gimme some “V” reruns and I’m happy. Remember when Marc Singer’s Mike Donovan is hiding in the vents and sees that Visitor eat a rat? TV sci-fi just don’t get much better than that.
