Syfy Orders A “Resident Alien” Series

Syfy has handed out a pilot order to “Resident Alien,” a drama based on the Dark Horse comics series by Peter Horgan and Steve Parkhouse.

Universal Cable Productions, Dark Horse Entertainment and Amblin TV will produce the film which Chris Sheridan (“Family Guy”) is adapting for television. Sheridan along with “The Americans” duo Justin Falvey and Darryl Frank will executive produce.
