Alan Tudyk Is a Doctor/Alien in the First Trailer for Resident Alien

It’s like Doctor Who, but…literal? SyFy has released the first trailer for its new show, Resident Alien, starring Alan Tudyk as an extraterrestrial who comes to a small-town to practice medicine.

The trailer shows Tudyk’s character—the convincingly named Dr. Harry Vanderspeigle—going through several ill-fated attempts to blend in with his human patients. He attends a house party, brushes his teeth face, fondles a brain or two, and takes a big juicy bite out of a glass of water.

Resident Alien premieres on SyFy this summer.
