The project will be a hybrid of live-action and CGI animation elements, much like The Smurfs. Jordan Kerner will produce alongside original series creators Tom Patchett and Paul Fusco, who will also return to provide the voice of the title character.
The series ran for 102 episodes over four seasons, between 1986 and 1990. The story followed the suburban Tanner family, who find a furry alien from the planet Melmac that crash landed in their garage. The Tanners take in the extraterrestrial, who has a penchant for eating cats and cracking wise. The title is an acronym for Alien Life Form.
No screenwriter or director is attached to the project at this time. »
