If you have listened to the Major Spoilers Podcast, you know co-host Rodrigo Lopez enjoys the heck out of Dark Horse Comics’ Resident Alien series from Peter Hogan and Steve Parkhouse. Late yesterday we learned that the Syfy channel and Amblin TV will adapt the series for a potential television series.

RESIDENT ALIEN is a dark, twisted and comedic fish-out-of-water story that follows a crash-landed alien named Harry 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 question, “Are human beings worth saving?”

Resident Alien is only at the pilot stage right now, but if all goes well, we might see it as a regular series next year.
