People of Earth
Second Season Coming 2017
Edited by Global ET Research
“I read about an alien abduction support group on the East Coast, and they just sounded very interesting to me. They all sounded like normal people. I started the article expecting to hear about a bunch of crazy people you would find on Craigslist or something, but they were Realtors, bankers (and) had jobs…” – David Jenkins, Producer
New Species of Sitcom Lands on TBS
The writers and producers of People of Earth did their homework, no doubt, by visiting our websites and reading our books, for which we are grateful. The outcome is projected mostly accurately and certainly hilariously during the spontaneously recalled memories the abductees in People of Earth recollect:
Implanted memories of images of animals (deer play a prominent role in this program, but don’t worry, deer are NOT aliens so don’t use that as an excuse to shoot them);
“Childhood memories” of alien abductions;
Extraction of memories to determine, for example, (“Who ran over our beloved Reptilian co-worker?”);
“You Are Special…” (“Bull-shit!” as the abductee lies on the table being mentally interrogated by a bulbous headed little Grey);
Suspicion of other humans in high places (Hillary is a Reptilian!) No, they haven’t gone there, but we can all agree, attorneys are clearly Reptilians.
We’re not 100% sure where People of Earth will eventually take us, but we have a pretty good idea. There is no doubt that other abduction related topics will be explored and we are delighted that there will be a second season coming in 2017.
As suspected, there has been some whining on the Internet about how this program makes fun of people who have experienced “alien abductions” – no wait – “alien experiences” – no wait – “experiencer phenomena” – well, you get the idea. Truth be told, it was the aliens themselves who first made us look like idiots with their ridiculous screen memories and telling us how “special” we are, which was taken advantage of by government operatives and their media and Internet trolls.
If you’re really experiencing Contact and you’re not completely jaded or worse, you already know this: Sometimes Laughter really is The Best Medicine, and because of that, we give People of Earth a Thumbs Up.
“The Conan O’Brien-produced People of Earth (which premiered Monday, 9th ET/PT) centers on a skeptical journalist named Ozzie Graham (Wyatt Cenac), who is sent on assignment to a small-town support group for people who believe they were abducted by Aliens.* Created by newcomer David Jenkins and executive-produced by Greg Daniels (NBC’s The Office), the extraterrestrial comedy tracks Ozzie’s descent into zany madness as he starts to think that he, too, may be an alien “experiencer.”
O’Brien, Jenkins and Daniels caught up with USA TODAY to chat about the offbeat People and current state of TV comedy:
The idea for the show came from David Jenkins:

Brenden Gallagher’s Overview of People of Earth can be read here:
“Americans have remained consistent on the subject of aliens for the last three decades. At any given moment, roughly 10 percent of Americans believe they’ve seen a UFO. A Gallup poll from 1990 found that 47 percent of respondents believed UFOs were ‘real,’ as in alien. A 2015 Ipsos poll found that 56 percent of Americans believed in UFOs. American disbelief of the government line on UFOs has also remained steady. In 1996, 71 percent thought the government was hiding something; it was 79 percent in 2012, according to a National Geographic Survey. In other words, more people believe that the US government is covering up evidence of alien life than believe that Jesus is the son of God (a 2013 Harris Poll survey found that 68 percent of respondents believed Christianity’s central tenet)...” – The Boston Globe **

* The term “Martians” was replaced with “Aliens” since none of the characters refer to the Beings as Martians in the first three episodes.... At least, that’s what the deer told us.
