Intergalactic starts filming in Manchester
The 10 x 60 for Sky One is written by Julie Gearey and set in the 23rd century when Earth’s space empire exiles its prisoners off-planet.
It centres on Ash, a young flight cadet wrongly imprisoned who gets embroiled in a prison break-out and goes on the run with a disparate gang of women.
At the time of commissioning, showrunner Gearey said: “With a fierce, funny ensemble at its heart, Intergalactic’s got everything I love about science fiction – action, adventure, monsters - but with its feet firmly on the ground. It’s been a joy to write and I’m excited to have such a creative team to bring it to life."
Moonage Pictures and Motion Content Group produce Intergalactic in association with Tiger Aspect Productions. Kieron Hawkes directs; the executive producers are Will Gould, Iona Vrolyk, Gearey, Frith Tiplady, Matthew Read, Richard Foster and Tony Moulsdale.
