Created by Halt & Catch Fire‘s Jason Cahill and executive produced by Scott Free and The Walking Dead‘s Greg Nicotero, the fantasy-action adventure is set in a postapocalyptic future without technology where a band of survivors is forced to adapt to isolation and the challenges of their new world. Hoare, repped by Shanahan Management in Australia and Management 360, will play Aethys, an apprentice blacksmith in the colony who has a gnawing restlessness and curiosity that lead him to a life-changing discovery. Debnam-Carey, repped by UTA, Management 360, Lisa Mann Creative Management in Australia and attorney Stewart Brookman, will play Essyn, Aeuthys’ sister and a doctor in training who is also the sole interitor of her family’s property, holding the future of many colonists in her hands.
