Syfy released the first seven interesting looking minutes of its live-action comics-based Resident Alien series pilot during New York Comic-Con. The series, a fish-out-of-water dramedy alien visitation series, is ready to check out ahead of its January 2021 premiere; it looks like it has the potential to be worthwhile viewing that is a somewhat dark comedy. The series stars Alan Tudyk, Sara Tomko, Corey Reynolds, Alice Wetterlund, and Levi Fiehler.
A synopsis of the series looks like this: Based on the Dark Horse comic, Syfy’s Resident Alien follows Harry, an alien played by Tudyk that crash lands on Earth and passes himself off as a small-town human doctor. Arriving with a secret mission to kill all humans, Harry starts off living a simple life… but things get a bit rocky when he’s roped into solving a local murder and realizes he needs to assimilate into his new world. As he does so, he begins to wrestle with the moral dilemma of his mission and asking the big life questions like: “Are human beings worth saving?” and “Why do they fold their pizza before eating it?” Tomko, Reynolds, Wetterlund, and Fiehler star as the big personalities of small-town Patience, Colorado.
