Netflix’s ‘Another Life’ is getting closer to production as the space drama has just added both Tyler Hoechlin who plays Superman on ‘Supergirl’ and Justin Chatwin (‘Orphan Black’,’Shameless’) to the cast. The news of these two joining comes right after Samuel Anderson (Sky 1’s ‘Trollied’), and Elizabeth Faith Ludlow (‘The Walking Dead’) also boarded after sneaking onto the show.
Behind the camera, the series is being brought to us by creator and showrunner Aaron Martin (‘Killjoys,”Saving Hope’) and executive producer Noreen Halpern (‘Alias Grace,”Haven’). With Netflix having so much success in the science fiction sphere, it is great to see that they are continuing to give us original content set in outer space as there aren’t a lot of networks who are doing that at the moment.
The series is a new project that the streaming giant has in the works which features Katee Sackhoff and Selma Blair as the two leads who everyone is excited to see head into the great unknown. Sackhoff’s Niko Breckinridge is on a mission to find alien intelligence and has taken her crew to explore what appears to be an alien artifact. Only, the crew is new, and the danger that is waiting for them looks to make this a one-way mission.
For the show, Hoechlin will be playing Ian Yerxa who is “the onetime commander of the space exploration ship who loses the post to Breckenridge.” Chatwin is set to “play Erik Wallace, part of the United States Interstellar Command — and Niko’s husband.” As to the other new additions: “Anderson and Ludlow will respectively play William, a holographic interface of a sentient A.I., and Cas Isakovic, Niko’s second-in-command, and staunchest ally.”
