Check out the official U.S. trailer for the new British sci-fi thriller series “Intergalactic,” which will be premiering this month on the new streaming platform Peacock.
Set in the year 2143, the series stars British actress Savannah Steyn as a futuristic sky cop named Ash Harper. When she is wrongly convicted of a treasonous crime, Ash is sentenced to serve time at a distant prison colony. But while traveling through space, a gang of dangerous convicts break free and suddenly take over the control of the transport ship. With most of the flight crew shot and killed, Ash must work with the convicts as she is the only one who can pilot the ship to safety.
Created and written by British television producer-writer Julie Gearey (Prisoners’ Wives, Cuffs, Secret Diary of a Call Girl), the series also stars Sharon Duncan-Brewster (Bad Girls), Eleanor Tomlinson (The Nevers), Natasha O’Keeffe (Peaky Blinders), Thomas Turgoose (This Is England), Hakeem Kae-Kazim (Black Sails), and Parminder Nagra (ER).
“Intergalactic” premiered in the U.K last week but will be available to stream in the U.S. next week on May 13th on NBC’s Peacock.
Written by award-winning showrunner, Julie Gearey, INTERGALACTIC tells the story of fearless young cop and galactic pilot, Ash Harper (Savannah Steyn), who has her glittering career ripped away from her after being wrongly convicted of a treasonous crime and exiled to a distant prison colony. But on the way there, Ash’s fellow convicts stage a mutiny and seize control of their prison transfer ship. With the flight crew dead, mob leader Tula Quik (Sharon Duncan-Brewster), is intent on reaching the free world — Arcadia — with her gang — and Ash is the only pilot who can get them there. Ash is forced to join them on the run towards a distant galaxy and an uncertain future.
