The basic premise for those is an odd one. Blade Runner would almost be quaint now as a TV show. The films are slow and attempt to be noir. They work within themselves, but breaking that out to ten hours would be a big challenge.

Alien comics have shown there’s space in that universe, although I’d have much preferred that happen before Scott attempting to explain everything, rather than leave mystery at the heart of everything. (That massive spaceship in Alien was awe-inspiring. I didn’t need him to then fill in the backstory.) Still: Noah Hawley. His stuff can be bumpy, but the first three seasons of Fargo were superb as was the first of Legion (before it disappeared right up its own arse).

The article says it's the first Alien story set on Earth - I'm sure some caveats would have to be added to that (even taken as a given that they mean 'aliens on Earth' and not 'scenes on Earth before the characters head to space')...

Actually, never mind that - both Aliens Vs Predator films were set on Earth, so we don't even have to resort to novels and comics...

Soooo a random thought , but would a xenomorph lay an egg in a replicant?

Are you suggesting an alternative to the Voight-Kampff test?

An alien laid an egg in Bishop in the William Gibson Alien 3 script.

They prefer the term 'artificial person'.

I read the comic of that too, so maybe that's where the idea percolated up from!
