Hulu has released the first teaser for the original drama series The First from House of Cards creator Beau Willimon and starring Academy Award winner Sean Penn. House of Cards stars Penn’s ex-wife Robin Wright.
Sean Penn leads an ensemble cast in this near-future drama about a crew of astronauts attempting to become the first humans on Mars. Under the direction of visionary aerospace magnate Laz Ingram (Natascha McElhone), the crew contends with peril and personal sacrifice as they undertake the greatest pioneering feat in human history. The look and feel of this first teaser is evocative of Terrence Malick if he had directed Arrival or The Martian.
The First also stars LisaGay Hamilton, Hannah Ware, Keiko Agena, Rey Lucas, James Ransone, Anna Jacoby-Heron, Brian Lee Franklin and Oded Fehr. Executive Producers include creator and showrunner Beau Willimon and Jordan Tappis for Westward Productions.
Hulu will release all eight episodes of The First on Friday, September 14th. Here is your first look.
