Described as dark, twisted and comedic fish-out-of-water story, Resident Alien “follows a crash-landed alien named Harry who, after taking on the identity of a small-town Colorado doctor, slowly begins to wrestle with the moral dilemma of his secret mission on Earth — ultimately asking the question, ‘Are human beings worth saving?'”
Resident Alien has been adapted for the small screen by Chris Sheridan (Family Guy), who will also executive produce along with Mike Richardson (The Mask) and Keith Goldberg (The Legend of Tarzan) of Dark Horse Entertainment and Justin Falvey (The Americans) and Darryl Frank (The Americans) of Amblin TV.
Syfy already has several comic book adaptations on the air, including Krypton, Happy! and Wynonna Earp, along with the upcoming Deadly Class.
