ALF reboot in development
Wise-cracking 1980s alien is the latest US series to be eyeing a reboot.
But what would Mrs. Ochmonek think?
The latest US title to be in reboot development is 1980s sitcom ALF.
The original series about a hairy, sarcastic extraterrestrial who is taken in by a middle-class family ran for four seasons.
It used a combination of puppetry and the late Mihaly “Michu” Meszaros to bring its wise-cracking Alien Life Form to life. Paul Fusco was the puppeteer and voice behind the title character, as well as the series co-creator, writer, director and producer but it’s unclear what his involvement would be in the potential reboot.
In recent years, the title character has popped up or been referenced on The Simpsons, Family Guy, The Big Bang Theory, Mr. Robot, Guardians of the Galaxy and Hot Tub Time Machine. In 2004 he hosted Alf’s Hit Talk Show on cable network TV Land network alongside Johnny Carson’s regular sidekick, Ed McMahon.
A writer is yet to be appointed.
