The series has been developed for the screen by Chris Sheridan (Family Guy, Titus) and is produced as a joint venture by Universal Cable Productions, Dark Horse Entertainment and Amblin Television, with Sheridan executive producing the project alongside Mike Richardson, Keith Goldberg, Justin Falvey and Darryl Frank.
Tudyk is joined by Sara Tomko (Sneaky Pete), Corey Reynolds (Murder in the First), Alice Wetterlund (People of Earth) and Levi Fiehler (Mars), with Tudyk set to play Dr. Harry Vanderspeigle, a reclusive resident of a small Colorado town whose identity is taken over by an alien that crash lands on earth. When the town’s doctor is murdered, the alien has to put his secret mission aside and take the doctor’s place, helping solve crimes and treat those in town.
Tomko will play town resident Astra Twelvetrees, who make the alien’s mission difficulty, while Reynolds will portray ruthless and unethical sheriff Mike Thompson, Wetterlund playing a former Olympic snowboarder turned ski patrol member D’Arcy Bloom, who enjoys using a mortar launcher to blow off steam, and Fiehler set to play college graduate Ben Hawthorne, who is dealing with the aftermath of a grisly murder.
After pushing back its premiere date from its original planned summer 2020 due to the pandemic, SYFY has officially set Resident Alien for a January 27, 2021 premiere!
