Away: Netflix’s emotional mission to mars

Netflix has released the official trailer for a new space web series titled, Away. It stars two-time academy award winner, Hilary Swank in the lead.

According to the official description:

Away is a thrilling, emotional drama on an epic scale that celebrates the incredible advancements humans can achieve and the personal sacrifices they must make along the way. As American astronaut Emma Green (Hilary Swank) 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.

The narrative follows complications in the lives of the astronauts in space with respect to the sacrifices they all have made to be there. There is personal and professional conflict bundled with a sense of achievement in the stars.

In an interview with Deadline, Swank said:

“I love that this commander of the mission to Mars is a woman and that’s not the drama of the story. That shows how far we’ve come towards equality. The drama was these richly, racial backgrounds, these people who are on this journey, working towards a goal together, while having this gravitational pull to Earth, these families that made it a love story.

“My character was dealing with this dream come true of this mission to Mars, dream come true of being a mother, which was unexpected, and growing these deep relationships with these other human beings she was on this mission with and breaking through these stereotypes.”

Away has been created by Andrew Hinderaker. It is executive produced by showrunner Jessica Goldberg, Jason Katims, Matt Reeves, Andrew Hinderaker, Edward Zwick, Hilary Swank, Adam Kassan and Jeni Mulein.

It will premiere on Netflix on September 4.
