Please see the synopsis below.

The year is 1957, and a flying saucer has landed in the deep swamps of Lizard Lick, Fla. The alarm is raised by anxious housefrau Florence Wexler (Leslie Robinson will be reprising her role) and motel owner Dottie Primrose (Dawn Farrell will be reprising her role), who claim their husbands have been abducted by aliens. Meanwhile, up in New York, the Daily Bugle’s editor Gilbert Wiatt  prepares to ace out its tabloid competitors by sending down its star reporter, Mattie Van Buren (Scott Risner will be reprising his role), and her drunken lover, photographer Gregory Graham, to cover the story — if Mattie’s sworn rival, the duplicitous Lucinda Marsh (Mark Phillips Schwamberger will be reprising his role), doesn’t get there first.
