Tyler Hoechlin (“Supergirl”), Justin Chatwin (“Shameless”), Samuel Anderson (“Loaded”) and Elizabeth Faith Ludlow (“The Walking Dead”) have been cast opposite Katee Sackhoff in Netflix’s ten-episode sci-fi drama series “Another Life”.
Sackhoff plays Commander Niko Breckenridge, an astronaut leading a crew on a mission to explore the genesis of an alien artifact. As she and her young crew investigate, they face unimaginable danger on what might very well be a one-way mission.
Hoechlin plays Ian Yerxa, the former commander of The Salvare space explorations ship who loses the post to Niko. Chatwin is Erik Wallace, Niko’s husband and part of the United States Interstellar Command dedicated to finding intelligent alien life.
Anderson is William, the holographic interface of a sentient AI. Ludlow will play Cas Isakovic, Niko’s second-in-command who is filled with courage and moral conviction. Selma Blair also recurs in the series.
Halfire Entertainment is producing the series with Omar Madha (“Scorpion”) set to direct the first two episodes. Aaron Martin (“Slasher,” “Saving Hope”) created the series and serves as showrunner.
