Galactic fast food worker DJ has his world turned upside down when a normal mission takes an unexpected turn, forcing him to live amongst us humans and conceal his alien identity. With the help of two would-be exposers turned friends, DJ soon finds that Earth is nowhere near as backward or primitive as he thinks, uncovering a bizarre world of government conspiracies, rival alien races, and most frightening of all…romance!

DJ Gray updates on Fridays. Episode 1 was originally posted on 08/30/2019 on Tumblr.
