One of Apple’s upcoming television shows is an unnamed sci-fi series from Battlestar Galactica developer Ronald D. Moore, which is currently in the casting stages.
According to Variety, several actors and actresses have inked deals to star in the show, which has been described as a series that will explore what would have happened had the global space race never ended.
Joel Kinnaman has signed on to play Edward Baldwin, a top NASA astronaut, while Michael Dorman and Sarah Jones will play Gordo and Tracy Stevens, a prominent NASA couple.
Kinnaman previously played Takeshi Kovacs in “Altered Carbon,” along with Will Conway in “House of Cards.” He’s also known for roles in “Easy Money,” “Suicide Squad,” and “RoboCop.”
Michal Dorman has been in “Patriot” and “Wonderland,” while Sarah Jones has starred in “Damnation,” “The Path,” and “Alcatraz.”
The show was created and written by Moore along with “Fargo” co-executive producers Matt Wolpert and Ben Nedivi. Moore is known for his work on shows like Battlestar Galactica,” “Caprica,” “Helix,” and “Outlander.”
Apple has more than a dozen original TV shows in the works, several of which are at the point where actors are being cast ahead of filming. Details on all of the shows that Apple has picked up can be found in the original content section of our Apple TV roundup.
Rumors have suggested the first of Apple’s TV shows could potentially launch in March 2019, perhaps through an upcoming streaming television service.
