A U.S. TV series based on The Terminator movies has axed a storyline because of its similarities to the Virginia Tech massacre. The Sarah Connor Chronicles is scheduled to be aired next year and follows a mother trying to protect her son from mankind. But a scene where character John Connor is attacked at school has been axed by TV network Fox, following the mass killings at the university in Virginia in April. Josh Friedman, an executive producer on the Fox TV show, says he is working on a revised storyline. The title role has been given to British actress Lena Headey, who has previously appeared in The Brothers Grimm and Ripley's Game.
