It may be robust to carry a household collectively lately… particularly when one in all you is a couple of million miles away.
Netflix has unveiled the official trailer for its upcoming drama collection Away, debuting Friday, Sept. four on the streamer and starring Oscar winner Hilary Swank as American astronaut Emma Inexperienced, who’s the commander of NASA’s first mission to Mars. Within the trailer, we see Emma say goodbye to her engineer husband Matt (The Good Spouse‘s Josh Charles) and teen daughter Lex (Talitha Bateman) before blasting off into space along with her international crew. (“It’s solely three years,” she tells Matt with amusing.)
However the experience to Mars will get just a little bumpy: Matt abruptly loses consciousness and finally ends up bed-ridden within the hospital, and Emma’s fellow astronauts have loads of issues of their very own. (“You think you’re the only one haunted by the sacrifices you made to get here?” one colleague pointedly asks her.) Plus, Emma stumbles throughout a shuttle mishap — “Houston, we have a situation,” somebody reviews again — and loses the religion of her crew. When she asks Russian cosmonaut Misha (Homeland‘s Mark Ivanir) to belief her, he informs her: “Trust must be earned, commander.”
Jason Katims, of Friday Night time Lights and Parenthood fame, is an govt producer, with Jessica Goldberg (The Path) serving as showrunner. The collection is “a thrilling, emotional drama on an epic scale that celebrates the incredible advancements humans can achieve and the personal sacrifices they must make along the way,” per the official description.
