Mayo Davis (Elliott Smith, Popstar: Never Stop Never Stopping) is an introspective 11 year old who lives with his mom Muriel (Beth Lacke, Frequency) at the Alamo motel, a charming but slightly rundown property in L.A.

Together with his neighbor Candy (Brooke Markham, Cassandra French's Finishing School), Mayo sets off on an adventurous chase through his new neighborhood in search of a like-minded friend.

Rounding out their trio is Ira (Griffin Kunitz, Days of our Lives), who has a garage full of inventions and gadgets they can use on their adventures. Together, the three of them try to prove the existence of aliens and can't help but become personally involved with the cases of people who call into their show.
