The Man Who Fell to Earth, a new science fiction series about an alien’s arrival on Earth, premieres on Sunday, April 24, at 10:00 p.m. ET on Showtime. The series is based on the 1963 novel by Walter Tevis (and made into a 1976 film starring David Bowie*) and was created by Jenny Lumet (Star Trek: Strange New Worlds) and Alex Kurtzman (Star Trek). Chiwetel Ejiofor stars as an alien who landed on Earth in a quest to save his species–and help Earth avoid the same dire fate. He meets Justin Falls (Naomie Harris), the one woman who can help save his species, and they go on a journey to find the solution to survival, despite dangerous people on their tail. The series also stars Jimmi Simpson, Clarke Peters, Rob Delaney, Sonya Cassidy, Joana Ribeiro, Annelle Olaleye, Bill Nighy, and Kate Mulgrew.

*Fun Fact: In reference to the previous adaptation starring David Bowie, all the episode titles in the new series are also the titles of Bowie songs.
