Linda Hamilton (“Terminator: Dark Fate”) has scored a recurring role alongside Alan Tudyk in Syfy’s Dark Horse comics adaptation “Resident Alien”. Peter Hogan and Steve Parkhouse produce with Chris Sheridan penning the adaptation.
Tudyk plans Harry, 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.
Hamilton will play General McCallister, a high-ranking general who seemingly plays by the rules and runs a tight ship but secretly oversees a covert operation looking for aliens.
Mandell Maughan (“Me, Myself & I,” “Undateable”) and Alex Barima (“The Exorcist,” “Riverdale”) are also set to recur as McCallister’s high-strung aide Lisa Casper and the recently dismissed military man David Logan respectively.
Universal Content Productions, Dark Horse Entertainment and Amblin TV are backing the project which also stars Sara Tomko, Corey Reynolds, Alice Wetterlund and Levi Fiehler.
