Later this month ABC1 will air UK sci-fi Outcasts, starring Liam Cunningham, Hermione Norris, Daniel Mays, Jamie Bamber and Eric Mabius.
The 8 part series, set in 2040 on a recently-discovered planet, tells of the dilemmas, loves and lives of a group of people setting up a new world. Just one season was produced before it was axed.
The series will replace Spooks and follow Doctor Who in a Saturday night timeslot.
Gripping epic drama about a group of courageous pioneers building a new and better future on a distant planet.
Amid growing fears for the future of Earth, a fleet of anti matter transporters departs for a newly discovered life supporting planet they name Carpathia, in a distant galaxy.
Led by president Tate (Liam Cunningham) and his core team of Stella (Hermione Norris), Cass (Daniel Mays) and Fleur, they take charge in the settlement of Forthaven and prepare to leave their old lives behind, far away from their home, friends and family.
They await the arrival of what could be the last transporter from Earth, whose entry to Carpathia is highly dangerous due to atmospheric pressure and combustion risk.
Loyalties are tested as the head of Forthaven’s Expeditionaries attempts to break away from the settlement, and the beginnings of a mystery which goes right to the heart of human life on Carpathia are uncovered.
It airs 8:30pm Saturday May 28th.
