AREA 51 Coming to TV…

…And even the New York Post is telling us about the writers. Hell, it’s leading with ’em.

That’s bigger news than this story:

Good after ‘Bad’ – by Linda Stasi

If you are thinking that Armageddon can’t come fast enough now that AMC’s “Breaking Bad” and “Mad Men” are nearing their ends, put away the survival gear.

There is something to live for, after all.

AMC just closed a deal this week to begin creating a new scripted series, “Area 51,” based on the best-selling book of the same title by Annie Jacobsen, The Post has learned.

Already aboard the “Area 51” spacecraft project are Gale Anne Hurd (“The Walking Dead”) as executive producer, Todd E. Kessler (“The Unit,” “The Good Wife,” “Rome),” as writer and Jacobsen as a co-producer.

In case you don’t know what Area 51 is, then clearly you haven’t been abducted by aliens (the space kind, not the border-crossing kind) since that crash in Roswell, NM, 65 years ago.

Area 51 is a remote, secretive, high-security portion of Edwards Air Force Base in Nevada — where, rumor has it, the military keeps living and/or dead alien creatures, as well as pieces of a flying saucer recovered from a crash site in nearby Roswell in 1947…

Jacobsen maintains in her book that the aliens found at the Roswell crash site weren’t from another planet but were the horrible results of American experiments on human beings .

She believes the crash signalled not an alien invasion but the start of the Cold War.

As big a step in the right direction as this is, we’ll know writers have really made it when “Page Six” starts spilling all our personal secrets.
