Quote:WHITE HOUSE PRESS CONFERENCE
6 November 2009
Tommy Christopher: Robert, I have one question and one clarification. First, the new TV series on ABC, “V,” a lot of people are talking about how this show draws very strong –
MR. GIBBS: I got to tell you — I’m going to start with this: I don’t want to give anybody the impression I have time to watch anything other than what most of you all do each night. So I can’t even tell you what that is or what it’s about. If that makes me fairly un-cool, I tend to watch more “SpongeBob” than “V.”
Tommy Christopher:There have been a lot of news stories about this –
MR. GIBBS: Makes me a hit with one six-year-old, and that really is all that counts.
Tommy Christopher: You haven’t seen the news stories about how this show compares your administration to the alien invaders? (Laughter.)
Seriously, really, you haven’t heard about it?
Q He couldn’t admit it if he had. (Laughter.)
MR. GIBBS: Because there’s a chip in the back of my head that requires me — (laughter) — I don’t mean to — I honestly — I got to tell you, I spend — I watch a little football on Saturday, a little football on Sunday, and a lot of news every other time.
Q Get a life. (Laughter.)
MR. GIBBS: Pardon me?
Tommy Christopher: Fourteen million people watch it, and the show –
MR. GIBBS: And clearly, me not being one of them. Again, I –
MR. GIBBS: Hold on. I’m not entirely sure who I’d check on since I don’t watch the show.
Tommy Christopher:Well, check with the President, see if he has a reaction –
MR. GIBBS: I will assume that the President watches –
Tommy Christopher:– comparing him to a space alien.
MR. GIBBS: What’s the — which would probably, like, be one of the least worst things he’s been called today.
Tommy Christopher:One clarification from yesterday on the meeting with Clemente, it sounded to me like you were saying that Clemente requested the meeting. Can you –
MR. GIBBS: We both wanted to get together.
Is “V” on — what network?
Jake Tapper: ABC.
MR. GIBBS: Okay. Can I get a little briefing after this from the –
Jake Tapper: We’ll send you a tape before the end of the day.
MR. GIBBS: Excellent.
Tommy Christopher: It’s serious.

Quote:The series pickup was announced in May 2009, to be executive produced by Scott Peters, Jace Hall, Steve Pearlman, and Jeffrey Bell. In September 2009 it was announced that four episodes of V would air in November 2009, and that the series would resume in March 2010 after the 2010 Winter Olympics to complete its 13-episode season. ABC entertainment president Steve McPherson said, "We always intended to break the show up into 'pods' to make it more of an event." As production of the fourth episode of V wrapped, it was announced on November 3, 2009 that Scott Rosenbaum had been named executive producer and showrunner of the series, with Peters and Hall remaining as executive producers. Production on the remaining nine episodes will resume in January 2010. As the original miniseries was inspired by the novel It Can't Happen Here by Sinclair Lewis and has been called "a modern retelling of how the Nazis rose to power in Germany," the re-imagined series has been accused of being an allegory of the presidency of Barack Obama. In his review of the show, Troy Patterson of Slate points out that bloggers and journalists had noticed parallels between the show's premise and the Barack Obama administration. Chicago Tribune reviewer (and noted libertarian) Glenn Garvin called the show, "controversial" but took a more down-the-middle approach, saying the series was "a barbed commentary on Obamania that will infuriate the president's supporters and delight his detractors."
