If you’ve been waiting for Katee Sackhoff (‘Riddick‘,’Longmire’) to head back into space in an ongoing series ever since ‘Battlestar Galactica‘ came to a close, then you’ll be quite happy with Netflix. The streaming service has just greenlit a 10-episode sci-fi drama starring the actress called ‘Another Life’!
The series is being brought to the network by Halfire Entertainment who is the producer behind ‘Alias Grace’ which makes this their second show on Netflix. Aaron Martin (‘Slasher’,’Saving Hope’) both created the series and will be acting as the showrunner. Serving as Executive Producer will be Halfire’s Noreen Halpern (‘Rookie Blue’Haven’).
The series will follow Sackhoff’s character, Niko Breckinridge, who is on a mission to find alien life. Niko and her crew are investigating what looks to be an alien artifact and will face “face unimaginable danger” on what is being billed as a potential “one-way mission.” Sackhoff in space and possibly meeting aliens is a fun concept.
The rest of the cast has yet to be announced but I’m hoping we’ll see a nice mixture of genre fan-favorites and new faces as the studio announces further casting.
While not being overtly billed as space horror, some of the plot descriptions do seem to firmly put it in that category with both facing “unimaginable danger” and being on a “one-way mission.”
