AMERICA’S FAVORITE ALIEN RETURNS IN ALL-NEW TV INTERSTITIALS
AS HOST OF ‘ALF WEEK’ ON THE HUB TV NETWORK IN JULY

LOS ANGELES – Television’s favorite alien life form is back with all-new material, when the comedic pop-culture icon ALF makes a special return to television for “ALF Week” (July 16-19) on The Hub TV Network, a destination for kids and their families. The beloved, wise-cracking alien will host the network’s Prime Time programming lineup for the week-long event, featuring ALF’s brow-raising, sense of humor as he gives his take on favorite episodes of his own series and classic shows on The Hub including “Mork & Mindy,” “Happy Days” and “The Facts of Life.” Viewers can learn what ALF has to say about life since his popular series was produced in the late 1980’s as he was living with the Tanner clan.
The ALF Week primetime lineup includes:
· Monday, July 16: “ALF” (7:30 p.m. ET) and “Mork & Mindy” (8-10 p.m. ET)
· Tuesday, July 17: “ALF” (7:30 p.m. ET) and “Happy Days” (8-10 p.m. ET)
· Wednesday, July 18: “ALF” (7:30 p.m.) and “The Facts of Life” (8-10 p.m. ET)
· Thursday, July 19: “ALF” (7:30 p.m. ET), including four fan-favorite episodes (8-10 p.m. ET)
The beloved comedy series “ALF” follows the adventures of Gordon Shumway, a furry, wise-cracking alien from the planet Melmac who crash lands into the garage of the Tanner family. The Tanners offer him a home and give him the nickname ALF, short for “Alien Life Form.” Created by Tom Patchett (“The Carol Burnett Show”) and Paul Fusco (also the puppeteer for ALF), the half-hour sitcom rose to popularity in the late 1980s cementing itself in the pop culture zeitgeist. Distributed by Alien Productions.
