Sky One’s ambitious new sci-fi drama Intergalactic has found its players.

10 episodes of Intergalactic have been created by Julie Gearey and will be directed by Fortitude‘s Kieron Hawkes. Sky One is hoping to air the series in 2021.

A synopsis of the series has been released, via TVWise:

Intergalactic is set at a time in the future where Earth has drastically changed and the entire population is now governed by a global authority, the Commonworld. It tells the story of rookie cop and galactic pilot, Ash, whose glittering career is ripped out from under her when she is falsely imprisoned. A fearless gang of high-security female prisoners hijack their transporter spaceship and set off into the galaxy in pursuit of freedom. Across their journey through space, this disparate gang of women will fight, fall in love and betray each other. But one thing is for certain, the further they travel from Earth, the closer they come to understanding who they truly are.”

“We are delighted to begin our Intergalactic journey with such an incredibly talented cast. We know that with Savannah Steyn, Parminder Nagra, Eleanor Tomlinson and Natasha O’Keefe at the helm, Julie Gearey’s audacious vision for the show will be brought to life in such an incredible way”, said Sky’s Director of Drama, Cameron Roach, in a statement. “We cannot wait to see them in action, in the most unique and phenomenal spaceship. With the backdrop of the galaxy, it really does promise to be a high octane prison drama like no other, that we really are confident our customers will love.”
