Coming in the Fall Season
A Stunning New Series
“Battlestar Galactica meets Lost meets Firefly!”
The year is 2121. Climate change has made the Earth virtually uninhabitable. Over the past decades, there has been a strategic exodus from Earth to distant colonies scattered throughout the galaxies, with humans and other life forms loaded onto huge space vehicles designed to sustain life for years, while they seek out habitable planets.
We join the ship Pegasus XII, home to 5,000 individuals, just as it completes its hyper jump into the Aeon Galaxy. Suddenly, there is a shipwide emergency, resulting in mass evacuation, scattering the humans, and whatever they can bring with them, across this new solar system.
One escape ship lands on a habitable planet, where the oddly assorted group tries to take stock of their situation, and of each other.
Here they thought they were starting a new life. But now they must create their….Next Life.
Gina Torres and Alan Tudyk as Maya and Joe: A married couple, they were recruited by the Pegasus Corp to pilot the ship and provide a military presence. They are skilled, reliable, and very much in love.
Karl Urban and Michael Ealy as Ray and Eames. Cops on Earth, they had joined the transport with twenty of their squad, and are the only survivors. Ray is sarcastic and hot-tempered, Eames is highly intelligent and a good negotiator.
Octavia Butler as Angeline. She is a schoolteacher, staunchly progressive, with strong ideas about a peaceful, utopian society. She can be warm and understanding, but she bristles at authority.
(And yes, my goal was to make a show with versions of some of my favorite characters. I had a lot more but ran out of time!)
