Hilary Swank to star in space drama series, Away

Published: 09th May 2019

Oscar-winning actor Hilary Swank has been roped in for the upcoming space drama series, titled Away.

According to reports, Swank will play American astronaut Emma Green, who must leave her husband and teenage daughter behind to command an international space crew embarking upon a dangerous mission to Mars.

The Netflix series from Jason Katims and Matt Reeves, is loosely inspired by Chris Jones' Esquire article of the same name, and is described as being about hope, humanity and how we need one another if we are to achieve impossible things.

Swank will also executive produce the 10-episode series.

The Path creator Jessica Goldberg will serve as showrunner, writer, and executive producer, alongside Katims, Reeves, Adam Kassan, Michelle Lee and Andrew Hinderaker, who wrote the first episode. Ed Zwick will direct the first episode.

The series is the latest small screen project to explore the task of making it to the Mars in the last few years after National Geographic aired the first season of their original series Mars in 2016, and Hulu is prepping The First starring Sean Penn and Natascha McElhone.
