THE NEIGH­BOURS:

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - MEDIA& MARKETING -

The neigh­bours fol­lows the story of Deb­bie (Jami Gertz) and Marty Weaver (Lenny Ven­ito) who have re­cently moved with their three kids to Hid­den Hills, a gated com­mu­nity with its own golf course. It’s an ex­clu­sive New Jersey com­mu­nity that hasn’t had a house come on the mar­ket in 10 years. They soon dis­cover that the neigh­bours are… a lit­tle odd. Larry Bird (Simon Tem­ple­man) in­tro­duces him­self as “leader” of this lit­tle com­mu­nity with wife, Jackie Joyner-Kersee (Toks Ola­gun­doye), and their two sons, Dick Butkus and Reg­gie Jack­son. It seems ev­ery­one in the neigh­bour­hood is named af­ter fa­mous ath­letes. Pretty soon, though, the se­cret’s out, and the Weavers learn that the whole com­mu­nity is made up of aliens from the planet Zab­vron. The Zab­vro­ni­ans have been wait­ing for in­struc­tions from back home for the past 10 years and this is their first en­counter hav­ing hu­mans live amongst them. Although hes­i­tant at first, the Weavers de­cide the house is a dream come true so they’ll stay and help the aliens adapt to life on Earth. The Weavers and the aliens soon dis­cover that the strug­gles of ev­ery­day life are in­ter­galac­tic and they’re more alike than dif­fer­ent.
