It looks like Netflix is going to have its go at a series dealing with both a first astronaut mission to Mars and family drama (“Away”). This sounds much like Hulu’s “The First,” which came out about 2 years ago but was cancelled around the same time that its star, Sean Penn, was cancelled due to his remarks on the “Me Too” movement.
I’m a sucker for space-based sci fi, so I eagerly await it, and besides, “The First” was pretty good, so if this is a copy, it might not be too bad. This series has Hillary Swank starring, and will be out around Labor Day weekend.
I will be back discussing this series after it airs.
