Netflix astronaut series Away will star Hilary Swank as the commander of an international space crew, sent on a dangerous mission.
Away, a developing Netflix series, will head to space for a monumental mission with a commander played by two-time Oscar winner Hilary Swank and television veteran Josh Charles.
Set as a 10-episode series, Away will be driven by showrunner Jessica Goldberg, who’s known as the creator of Hulu’s subversive 2016-2018 drama, The Path, and wrote the script to directors Joe and Anthony Russo’s 2020-scheduled, Tom Holland-headlined drama, Cherry. The series is said to be loosely inspired by an article published in Esquire about the real-life mission of astronaut Scott Kelly.
The official logline for Away describes a show that “centers on Emma Green [played by Swank], an American astronaut who must leave her husband and teenage daughter behind to command an international space crew embarking upon a treacherous mission.
