Sky's the limit for ABC's "V" promotion

LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter) - ABC might not be able to simulate spaceships hovering above cities, as in the show’s premiere episode, but the network came up with the next best thing to promote the launch of its alien-invasion drama “V.”

Starting Friday, skywriters will create giant V’s across the sky at 26 U.S. landmarks. The network is mum on where and when the V’s will strike, but such places as the Statue of Liberty and the Capitol Records building in Los Angeles are under consideration. The skywriting will be done multiple times a day at each site until the series launch at 8 p.m. November 3.

“V” is the final new fall broadcast drama to debut. After four episodes, it goes on hiatus until early next year.
