There’s no shortage of late-night talk show options out there. But you probably haven’t watched one hosted by an alien before. Earth to Ned is about to change that.

Earth to Ned offers a fresh take on the talk show format. Produced by the Jim Henson Company, Disney+’s first original talk show lets extraterrestrials Ned and Cornelius take over as celebrity interviewers.

Here’s the official description from Disney: 

Alien commander Ned and his lieutenant Cornelius call off the invasion of Earth after they fall in love with human culture. Broadcasting from the bridge of their spaceship, Ned and Cornelius interview Earth’s greatest resource: celebrities. With the help of the ship’s artificial intelligence, BETI, and the destructive CLODs (Cloned Living Organisms of Destruction), Ned must keep his show a secret from his home planet or suffer the wrath of his father, the Admiral of the Galactic Fleet. 

The show will cover a wide variety of topics relevant to Earthlings and fascinating to the aliens, including comedy, social media, sports, and fashion.

Check out the trailer below for your first look at the show.

Here are some of the celebrities set to beam their way on to Earth to Ned.

  • Gina Carano (The Mandalorian)
