Dan Waters (of Heathers and Demolition Man) is writing and executive producing the pilot. Aaron Geller will be an executive producer and Darryl Porter will be co-executive producer, under their PorterGeller Entertainment first-look deal with Fox Television Studios.
The comedic pilot is about three humanoid aliens stranded in middle America, and explores the themes found in such classics as Stranger In A Strange Land, The Day the Earth Stood Still, and Starman, but with a dose of South Park-like satire.
Stranded on our world under false pretenses, the trio - a woman and two men in human form - must figure out how to escape, while navigating the confusing social conventions of present-day Earth. Despite their extremely advanced technology and intellect, they find themselves naïve in the commonplace things that humans take for granted, such as falling in love and paying bills.
