Set in the fictional city of Rutherford, Ohio, 3rd Rock from the Sun follows a team of eccentric aliens cleverly disguised as humans on a quest to learn about earthlings and their traditions. The award-winning comedy is from Producers Marcy Carsey and Tom Werner, who shared credits include: "That '70s Show," "The Cosby Show" and "Roseanne" and Bonnie and Terry Turner, former "Saturday Night Live" writers and co-creators of "That '70s Show."

The high commander of this team of aliens is Dr. Dick Solomon (Lithgow), who has taken a position as a professor of physics at the University of Ohio. Dick's associate on the mission is a decorated military officer who takes human form as a sexy female named Sally (Johnston) and his intelligence specialist is put in the body of Tommy (Gordon-Levitt) a teenager going through puberty. And since there was an extra seat on the voyage Harry Solomon joined the mission. Harry is the goofy oddball who has a telepathic connection with their leader from home, the Big Giant Head.

Hilarity ensues as the team adjusts to their new human forms and the earthlings around them. Dick finds himself sharing a cramped office with Dr. Mary Albright (Curtin), towards whom he feels a strange attraction. Sally, meanwhile, becomes obsessed with Officer Don Orville (Knight). Along the way the team also encounters and studies their eccentric landlord Ms. Dubcek (Elmarie Wendel, And the Band Played On) and Dr. Albright's assistant, Nina Campbell (Simbi Khali, A Vampire in Brooklyn).
