Based on the Dark Horse comic, SYFY’s RESIDENT ALIEN Follows a crash-landed alien named Harry played by Alan Tudyk (“Rogue One,” “Firefly”) who takes on the identity of a small-town Colorado doctor and slowly begins to wrestle with the moral dilemma of his secret mission on Earth. The stranded, curious alien known as Dr. Harry (Alan Tudyk) tends to patients in the sleepy town of Patience, Colorado. Questions about the town’s previous doctor arise when a strange briefcase is found leading to the crash of the alien vessel sent to destroy the Earth. Adapted for television by Chris Sheridan (Family Guy), Resident Alien follows Harry (Tudyk), a crash-landed alien 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 big life questions: “Are human beings worth saving?” and “Why do they fold their pizza before eating it?”
