We compute the contribution of a scalar H or pseudo-scalar A resonance in top-quark pair production at NLO accuracy in QCD including the interference between pure QCD SM diagrams and the resonant process which drastically modifies the lineshape of the signal from a simple peak to peak-dip structure. We assume a point-like coupling between scalar and the gluons in a consistent effective field theory framework and improve the results with reweighting techniques in the case of resolved fermion loops in the production. The computation is set in an automatic framework and can be used to produce showered unweighted events. The detailed study is presented in Ref .
