The BBC has commissioned a pilot for a new sci-fi sitcom, reports Broadcast.


Written by Steve Turner, V Sign focuses on a group of humans facing off the universe's most incompetent alien invasion.


It's unclear at the moment whether the pilot, which is being produced by Green Inc and Retort, will be broadcast or not. The BBC's last SF sitcom, Hyperdrive, was piloted with a different cast to the eventual series.


Stephen Stewart, managing director and founder of independent production company Green Inc, told Broadcast, "We have several projects in development with Retort, and are very excited that our first successful project is V Sign. Steve Turner's script and the world he has created excited us the first time we read it."


Retort head Jon Rolph added, "A global alien invasion isn't usually the best way to start a collaboration, but we hope that V Sign's hapless visitors will spearhead many more projects to come from Green Inc and Retort."
