War of the Worlds is a TV series that is being produced by Fox and Studio Canal+. The TV series will consist of 8 episodes and take place in the present day, similar to Steven Spielberg's 2005 movie, but will be a reimagining of the classic H.G. Wells novel - with series writer and creator Howard Overman stating that this version would be "bold, fresh and relatable" and will explore themes of "racial superiority and ethnic conflict".

PremiseEdit

In this new take on War Of The Worlds, when astronomers detect a transmission from another galaxy, it is definitive proof of intelligent extra terrestrial life. Earth's population waits for further contact with bated breath, but does not have to wait long. Within days, mankind is all but wiped out, with just pockets of humanity are left in an eerily deserted world. As alien ships appear in the sky, the survivors ask a burning question — who are these attackers and why are they hell-bent on our destruction?
