SciFi drama series. An organisation attempts to stop a planned takeover by alien invaders – a long way from Wells’s novel, these aliens can assume human form to make spotting them doubly difficult.
The series is an extension of the original 1953 film The War of the Worlds, using the same War Machine, often incorporating aspects from the film, radio adaptation, and original novel into its mythology.
Though the original film’s producer, George Pal, conceived of a TV series from the same film sometime in the 1970s, it was not until the late 1980s that a series was finally realized, this time by television producer Greg Strangis. The show was a part of the boom of first run syndicated television series being produced at the time.
