The series, which premiered Sept. 4 and which counted Friday Night Lights boss Jason Katims among its executive producers, followed Commander Emma Green (played by Swank) and her international crew as they began a three-year trip to Mars in the near future. Emma’s four-person team consisted of Misha from Russia (Mark Ivanir, Homeland), Kwesi from Ghana/England (Ato Essandoh, Chicago Med), Lu from China (Vivian Wu, The Pillow Book) and Ram (Ray Panthaki, EastEnders). Back on the ground, Josh Charles (The Good Wife) portrayed Emma’s NASA engineer husband Matt, who stayed on Earth to take care of their teenage daughter, Alexis (Talitha Eliana Bateman, Love, Simon).
