People of Earth
People of Earth is a new original comedy about a support group for alien abductees from Emmy®-winning executive producers Conan O'Brien (Conan), Greg Daniels (The Office, Parks and Recreation) and Jeff Ross (Conan, Eagleheart), created by co-executive producer David Jenkins.
The comedy centers on skeptical journalist Ozzie Graham (three-time Emmy® winner Wyatt Cenac - The Daily Show), who investigates a support group to write about the member's supposed alien encounters. The more he digs into their oddball claims, however, the more he realizes a semblance of truth to their stories and possibly even signs that point to his own alien abduction. The onetime outsider now finds himself a part of this eclectic group of misfits, all the while struggling with the idea of knowing that life could exist beyond our world.
The support group is run by part-time therapist Gina Morrison (Ana Gasteyer - Saturday Night Live), and her regulars include Kelly Grady, an obliviously attractive goofball; Gerry Johnson, an amiable social dropout, tollbooth worker and enthusiastic expert on all things alien; Richard Shenk, a tech company employee convinced his wife is held captive by aliens; Margaret Flood, a retiree taking full advantage of her newfound sexual freedom at a retirement community; Chelsea Healey, a model housewife with a dark side; Yvonne Watson, a successful door-to-door cosmetics saleswoman; Don the White, a tall barista with a ponytail, alabaster skin and what some might call an otherworldly capacity for positive thinking; and Jeff the Grey, an extremely pragmatic guy who's ready and willing to serve as logistics manager for any potential alien invaders. Gina's support group meets in the community room of Our Lady of Sorrows in the small town of Beacon, renting the space through Father Doug. Also playing a role in Ozzie's life is his gregarious boss, Jonathan Walsh, who harbors an even greater secret of his own.
