У нас ещё и не такое возможно...

История о том, как в 1980-е годы в США пытались экранизировать роман-предупреждение Синклера Льюиса "У нас это невозможно" (1935 г.) про приход фашистов к власти в Америке.

Реальность превзошла всякую кафку: Inspired by the book, director–producer Kenneth Johnson wrote an adaptation titled Storm Warnings, in 1982. The script was presented to NBC, for production as a television mini-series, but the NBC executives rejected the initial version, claiming it was too "cerebral" for the average American viewer. To make the script more marketable, the American fascists were re-cast as man-eating extraterrestrials, taking the story into the realm of science fiction. The new, re-cast story was the mini-series V, which premiered on May 3, 1983.
