King Theodore Live is a sci fi comedy set in the modern day, about an alien who comes to Earth to see King Theodore, her favorite band. She first makes contact with the lead singer -- now an accountant floundering through his 20s --by taking over the body of a dead co-worker. In the far reaches of space, the latest vacation trend is Cross Cosmic Bio Tourism, a technology allowing extraterrestrial tourists to inhabit dead bodies on distant worlds. Traveler 5AA77 has waited years for an eligible body to die, and when high-strung CFO Jordyn MacKenzie collapses from a cocaine overdose in her Manhattan apartment, that wait is over. Meanwhile, Hershel Cohen-Bravo (Hershey) is in the midst of a decade-long rut. Stuck in a pattern of hooking up with strangers and slacking off at his dead-end job, he and his co-workers are living lives they never expected. Today, following his latest screw up at work, Hershey is wondering why Jordyn, his boss, isn't picking up her phone.When Hershey and the alien Jordyn meet at a downtown dive bar, they are immediately drawn to each other, recognizing the same feelings of angst and a need for reckless adventure. As they party into the night, Hershey comes to realize that this encounter with the unlikeliest of fans will be the start of something exciting and new.
