About Nathan Pyle and Dan Harmon

Pyle’s books feature stories of big eyed, bright blue “beings” from a planet that shares a lot in common with Earth. The aliens sunbathe and sneeze but describe these actions with phrases like “sun damage” and “face fluid explosions.” Harman is the force behind such shows as “Community” and “Rick & Morty.”

The series is produced by Apple Studios and animation studio and production house ShadowMachine (“Bojack Horseman”). Alex Bulkley and Corey Campodonico executive produce for ShadowMachine. Steve Levy and Taylor Alexy Pyle also serve as executive producers on the project.
