This was a very popular SF lite comedy series in the 80s. MeTV I noticed is airing it. This lasted five years in the 80s. Its easily remakable and could be very cheap to do. Why not? Granted its very 80ish and at times topical still it can easily be updated. Alf’s views on Trump. Could be fun. Remade as a tv series not movie.
Bill Hader would be a great voice of Alf.
