Away: Netflix’s Hilary Swank Astronaut Series Reveals Cast

Joseph Baxter Aug 9, 2019

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.

‘The Resident’: Miles Gaston Villanueva To Recur On Fox Medical Drama
Miles Gaston Villanueva (Law & Order True Crime) is set for a major recurring role on Fox’s medical drama The Resident.

Villanueva will play Alec, a born innovator, a loner and iconoclast who has spent a lifetime on the move. His father was an eccentric and Alec lived part of his childhood in a converted school bus.

The American Film Institute (AFI) announced today two different programs geared toward increasing the number of women cinematographers working in Hollywood. Sponsored by 21st Century Fox, the programs will be tuition-free and are geared toward women directors of photography at two very different stages of their careers.

Trailer Watch: Heather Graham Says Goodbye to Jerks in Directorial Debut “Half Magic”

“Half Magic”

“I want to have hot sex with someone who’s really nice to me,” says Heather Graham in a new trailer for her directorial debut, “Half Magic.” She stars as Honey, a woman who is sick of dating jerks. It’s not like she’s asking for all that much — but the sleazebag she’s currently having sex with can’t meet her perfectly reasonable standards. He constantly undermines and dismisses her, at one point answering her question by asking if she’s posing it simply because she’s jealous that he’s more successful than she is. He’s that awful.

While attending a feminist event, Honey meets two new friends (Angela Kinsey and Stephanie Beatriz), both of whom are also unhappy in their personal lives. So Honey suggests the trio “make a pact to be with good guys only” — guys who treat them well like they deserve.
