The day of the Triffids- CBC/BBC miniseries
OMG this looks great. I was never much on the original "Day of the Triffids" but this could be amazing.
"In the not too distant future, man's search for an alternative fuel supply leads him to uncover the ominous Triffid, a crop now cultivated for its fuel that seems to have a life of its own. But when billions of humans are mysteriously blinded, the Triffids find their way out of captivity. Free to roam the planet with a fatal sting, and a retributive taste for human flesh, the Triffids begin rapid breeding.
Now Dr Bill Masen (Dougray Scott) must lead the brave in their epic battle against the Triffids' reign of terror in what could be the last days of mankind."
The slightly modernized two part mini-series was written by Patrick Harbinson of ER and Law & Order fame and is currently in production to air later this Summer 2009.
