Netflix has dropped the first trailer for Away, Jason Katims’ space drama series. The streamer has set September 4 for the premiere of the series starring Hilary Swank.
The 43-second clip features only Swank, weightless in the space capsule, clearly longing to see her family. “I miss you so much,” says Swank’s Emma Green, as she looks at a family photo.
Created by Andrew Hinderaker, Away stars Swank as American astronaut Emma Green. As Green prepares to lead an international crew on the first mission to Mars, she must reconcile her decision to leave behind her husband (Josh Charles) and teenage daughter (Talitha Bateman) when they need her the most. As the crew’s journey into space intensifies, their personal dynamics and the effects of being away from their loved ones back on Earth become increasingly complex. Away shows that sometimes to reach for the stars, we must leave home behind.
The series is executive produced by showrunner Jessica Goldberg, Katims, Matt Reeves, Andrew Hinderaker, Edward Zwick, Swank, Adam Kassan and Jeni Mulein.
