Josh Charles (“The Good Wife”) has joined the cast of “Away” and is set to star as Matt Logan (joining co-star Hilary Swank), a NASA engineer whose wife is commanding the first mission to Mars. He faces the already enormous challenges of dealing with the mission from home, while trying to raise their teenage daughter on his own, but when he goes through a life-altering experience in the first episode he will understand the true cost of what it means to be away from each other.
Hilary Swank will star in and executive-produce the 10-episode drama loosely inspired by Chris Jones’ Esquire article of the same name. It is an epic love story and a thrilling tale of survival set against humanity’s greatest endeavour – the first human mission to Mars. Swank will star as Emma Green, an American astronaut who must leave her husband and teenage daughter behind in order to command an international space crew embarking upon a treacherous, year-long mission.
Away centers on Emma Logan, an American astronaut who must leave her husband and teenage daughter behind to command an international space crew embarking upon a treacherous mission. It is a series about hope, humanity and how we need one another if we are to achieve impossible things.
