Kenneth Johnson is the creator of many of the most remembered television series of the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s. He is the creator of the original Bionic Woman series starring Lindsay Wagner as Jaime Sommers. Kenny also created the Incredible Hulk series starring Bill Bixby and Lou Ferrigno for which he wrote and directed what many believe to be the best episodes of the series. In the 90’s, Kenny developed the television series version of the movie Alien Nation which went on to film four sequel movies. Kenny is quite probably best known for his epic television mini-series, “V” starring Marc Singer, Jane Badler and Faye Grant, for which Kenny was Creator, Writer, Producer and Director. “V” is the story of alien visitors who pose as friends but secretly steal all of the Earth’s water for their own and also take the Human population of Earth as food. It is a parallel to the Nazi genocide which took place during World War II, as a small group of Human rebels fight to regain their planet. Kenny has written the long awaited sequel to “V” entitled “V – The Second Generation” and will be doing a book signing at EyeCon on Saturday, April 5.
