“The Hairy Crown Conspiracy” is a comedy-thriller series that follows the adventures of a group of friends as they become entangled with alien assassins. The initial setting is Earth in the late 21st century, in the city of Chattanooga, Tennessee.

The main protagonist, Bob, operates a hot dog cart. He is dating a sweet lady, Betty, who is a DJ at a Christian radio station. Betty would love to get married. Bob, however, is not sure he wants to commit long-term.

Although Bob is not the best boyfriend, he is a good friend to have in a pinch. He met his best friend Santiago after saving his sister’s life. They are friends with a self-absorbed but charming mall jewelry salesman, Xander. Bob and Santiago are puzzled when strange things begin to happen: a mime attacks Xander; a toy drone blows up in the mall; a Santa Claus doll comes to life. It becomes apparent someone has a secret, one that could turn deadly once alien assassins attack.

Bob’s life is spared only when the hot dogs he’s selling begin to bark (to reveal how this happens would provide a spoiler). The race is on to escape the attackers and find help.

“The Hairy Crown” refers to the crown that the Galactic Emperor wears—it comes with a wig, hence the hair reference.
