Another Life follows humanity’s first interstellar mission: heading to the origin of an alien artifact that’s landed on Earth. Back on home soil, first contact with the artifact is attempted. And yeah, ain’t no friendly little ET’s to be found here.
“This mission can not, and will not, fail,” says lead character astronaut Niko Breckinridge, a return to space for Battlestar Galactica alumna Katee Sackhoff. The series also stars Tyler Hoechlin, Selma Blair, Justin Chatwin, Samuel Anderson, Elizabeth Faith Ludlow, A.J. Rivera, and Alexander Eling, among others.
The show comes from creator Aaron Martin, who was behind horror anthology series Slasher and has worked as a writer/consulting producer on sci-fi adventure series Killjoys.
We haven’t been hearing much about this one, but we’re highly intrigued with the solid look provided below. The 10-episode first season of Another Life will be hitting Netflix on July 25.
