Check out Away Trailer from Netflix. In this new show Hilary Swank plays American astronaut Emma Green who leads the first mission to Mars. It’s a 10 episode series which will be available to stream from September 4th, 2020.
Visionary Executive Producer Jason Katims who brought you Friday Night Lights created Away. Netflix claims the show to be an epic!
The series stars two-time Academy Award winner Hilary Swank in what we will see to be an emotional story of love and sacrifice.
The story has American astronaut Emma Green (Hilary) preparing to lead an international crew on the first mission to Mars. However, she must reconcile her decision to leave behind her husband (Josh Charles) and teenage daughter (Talitha Bateman) when they need her the most!
We will see the crew’s journey into space intensify. But there is more. Their personal dynamics and the effects of being away from their loved ones back on Earth become increasingly complex.
Away aims to demonstrate that sometimes to reach for the stars, we must leave home behind.
Below are the astronauts that undertake the three year journey to Mars and back.
