Choctaw native Ryan Merriman stars in the Syfy movie “Independence Day-saster,” premiering at 8 p.m. tonight on the cable network.

Tom Everett Scott, Emily Holmes and Andrea Brooks also star in the film, reports NewsOK TV blogger Melissa Hayer.

Here’s a summary of the movie, provided by Syfy:

In “Independence Day-saster,” an alien invasion cripples America’s conventional defense forces. When the President’s helicopter is shot down, his brother (a small-town hero) and a renegade scientist must find the aliens’ weakness and defeat them.

Merriman also was recently seen on the big screen in the Jackie Robinson biopic “42,” which debuts July 16 on Blu-ray and DVD.
