Resident Alien, an oddball drama series based on the Dark Horse comic of the same name, is set to bow on CTV Sci-Fi Channel.
The ten-episode series follows a crash-landed alien named Harry (Alan Tudyk, Rogue One), who takes on the identity of a small-town Colorado doctor. Arriving on Earth with a secret mission to kill all humans, he slowly begins to wrestle with the moral dilemma of his task. Resident Alien is slated to premiere on CTV Sci-Fi Channel on January 27. New episodes will be available to stream on CTV.ca and the CTV app.
From UCP, a division of Universal Studio Group, Resident Alien also stars Sara Tomko (Once Upon a Time), Corey Reynolds (The Closer), Alice Wetterlund (Silicon Valley) and Levi Fiehler (MARS). Linda Hamilton (Terminator) appears in a recurring role as General McCallister, while Mandell Maughan (Bajillion Dollar Properties$) and Alex Barima (Riverdale) recur as agents.
