The story takes place in the small town of Glenview, Ohio. It begins when local [=CostCo=] manager Evan Trautwig (Creator/BenStiller) forms the Watch after his store's night watchman is gruesomely murdered and the police don't seem to care. He's joined by three others: Bob (Creator/VinceVaughn), a construction worker with a rebellious daughter, Franklin (Creator/JonahHill), a high school dropout who wanted to be a cop but failed the psych tests, and Jamarcus ([[Series/TheITCrowd Richard]] [[Series/GarthMarenghisDarkplace Ayoade]]), a recent divorcee. None of them are as dedicated as Evan, though.

Originally titled ''Neighborhood Watch'', it was retitled and the marketing was changed to focus on the aliens after [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shooting_of_Trayvon_Martin a controversial incident in Florida where an altercation between a teenager and an overzealous Neighborhood Watchman left the teenager dead from a bullet wound]].
