V (also known as V: The Series) is an American science fiction television series that aired in the United States on NBC from 26 October 1984 to 22 March 1985.
It is a continuation of the V franchise about an alien invasion of Earth by a carnivorous race of reptilians known as “Visitors”, which was originally conceived by American writer, producer, and director Kenneth Johnson. Johnson, however, was not involved in the production of the weekly series.
A teenaged computer whiz Henry Atkins (Josh Richman) hacks into and disrupts the Visitors’ sophisticated new Battlesphere system, but he insists that the Resistance first rescue his father Dr. David Atkins (Conrad Janis) from alien captivity.
