Satirical true crime series Modern Aliens investigates political events that might or might not be related to alien conspiracies.
If you’re a bit tired of the current US political events and need to take a break, mockumentary Modern Aliens: A Documentary Periodical might be an excellent way to do that. Written by NY based writer and director Jordan Jaffe, Modern Aliens uses comedy and news, and orients each episode around “a batshit crazy event that has occurred in our true, not made up, genuine news cycle.”
