Plot Synopsis

Executive produced by Conan O'Brien and Greg Daniels, PEOPLE OF EARTH is a half-hour comedy series about StarCrossed, a support group for alien "experiencers," focusing on Ozzie Graham, a skeptical journalist from New York, who investigates its members to write about their supposed alien encounters. Although a suspicious car accident initially leads him to the group, the more Ozzie digs into the members' oddball claims, the more he realizes there is truth in 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. Plus, his boss Jonathan Walsh, the titan behind Glint Enterprises, has an interest in Ozzie that goes well beyond work, causing Jonathan to relentlessly pursue Ozzie's friendship. As StarCrossed's leader, Gina Morrison traded her fancy office and high-paying clientele in New York for a church basement, where she co-founded and now leads the group. She's focusing on building her new life in Beacon as best she can, but finds Ozzie to be especially challenging, because he resists her help as she tries to get him to accept his own possible alien experience. The group's other co-founder, local marijuana advocate Gerard 'Gerry' Johnson, is a self-proclaimed alientologist, but his relationship with the group is complicated because he hasn't actually had an alien experience. This fanboy is determined to become friends with Ozzie, a man he sees as a kindred spirit, because they are both searching for answers about the unexplained. Father Doug is the lonely pastor at Our Lady of Sorrows, the church where StarCrossed meets, and the group's presence has sent him spiraling into questioning his life, beliefs, and quite possibly his vows as an unorthodox friendship with Chelsea develops. Chelsea struggles with her part as a housewife and the monotony of it all, including her marriage, which is definitely in a rut. When Chelsea has a steamy, sexual encounter with an alien, StarCrossed meetings become the highlight of her week, becoming a place for her to be seen and heard -- and it's an excuse to get out of the house. Other StarCrossed members include: Richard Schenk, a rabid Reptilian conspiracy theorist, who blames the Reptilians for everything that's gone wrong in his life, even holding them responsible for kidnapping his wife Debbie, who may have just walked out on him; newly widowed Margaret Flood, who had to start her life over as a single woman in a retirement community, and shares with StarCrossed about her experiences that fateful night when she got up to make a midnight snack; postal worker Yvonne Watson, who claims a green lizard an broke into her home in the middle of the night, and now has booby-trapped her home while trying to get to the bottom of a potential alien conspiracy in Beacon; commitment-phobe Kelly Grady, who pretends to be "too cool" for StarCrossed, but deep down realizes the group is the only thing keeping her in Beacon because she secretly cherishes how her experience made her feel special; farmer Ennis Hart, who just wants to tend to his land and livestock and be left alone, but is constantly annoyed by the microphone the Greys implanted in his head, leaving him without a moment of peace; and more people coping with alien experiences.
