Bradbury Short Inspires Amblin Series

Amblin TV, capitalizing on its success with Falling Skies, is developing another alien drama.  ABC has ordered a pilot titled The Visitors based on Ray Bradbury’s short story “Zero Hour.”

The Visitors chronicles the race against the clock to defeat an unseen alien enemy out to destroy the world using our most precious resource against us. ABC Studios is producing.  [Dawn] Olmstead and [Soo] Hugh are exec producing along with Amblin’s Darryl Frank, Justin Falvey and Steven Spielberg.

If I didn’t already know the answer I’d be tempted to wonder what aliens in 2014 think “our most precious resource” is? Kim Kardashian’s butt?
