EXCLUSIVE: Battlestar Galactica alumna Katee Sackhoff is heading back to space as the lead of Another Life. Netflix has given a 10-episode order to the sci-fi drama series, from Alias Grace producer Halfire Entertainment.

Created by Aaron Martin (Slasher, Saving Hope, DeGrassi: The Next Generation), who also serves as showrunner, Another Life centers on astronaut Niko Breckinridge (Sackhoff) who is focused on searching for alien intelligence. She leads a crew on a mission to explore the genesis of an alien artifact. As Niko and her young crew investigate, they face unimaginable danger on what might very well be a one-way mission.

Noreen Halpern executive produces for Halfire Entertainment. In addition to the award-winning Netflix original series Alias Grace, her series credits also include Rookie Blue and Haven.

Sackhoff played Capt. Kara “Starbuck” Thrace on then-Sci Fi’s hit space drama Battlestar Galactica. Another Life reunites her with Netflix. The actress is coming off a six-season run as the female lead of popular drama Longmire, which was picked up by Netflix following its shock cancellation by A&E. It aired as a Netflix original for Seasons 4-6.

Sackhoff is repped by UTA, Bleu’s Leland LaBarre and attorney Darren Trattner.
