TNT has ordered a pilot for an untitled alien-invasion TV series from DreamWorks TV and executive producers Steven Spielberg, Justin Falvey, Darryl Frank and Robert Rodat, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
The series would be set six months after a worldwide alien invasion. Saving Private Ryan writer Rodat is penning the pilot based on an idea he conceived with Spielberg.
Spielberg has dealt with alien material on TV before, notably with SCI FI Channel's Emmy-winning 2002 miniseries Taken.
ABC has ordered its own alien-invasion series, a remake of the classic sci-fi miniseries V.
