Leading Streaming Service Netflix Announces The New Original Series AWAY Starring Hilary Swank and Ray Panthaki


07 July 2020

AWAY Premieres on Netflix Friday, September 4th. 

From Executive Producer Jason Katims (Friday Night Lights), the Netflix series Away is a thrilling, emotional drama on an epic scale that celebrates the incredible advancements humans can achieve and the personal sacrifices they must make along the way. 

As American astronaut Emma Green (Hilary Swank) prepares to lead an international crew on the first mission to Mars, she must reconcile her decision to leave behind her husband (Josh Charles) and teenage daughter (Talitha Bateman) when they need her the most.  As the crew's journey into space intensifies, their personal dynamics and the effects of being away from their loved ones back on Earth become increasingly complex. Away shows that sometimes to reach for the stars, we must leave home behind.

 

 

BAFTA Breakthrough Brit Ray Panthaki (Gangs of London, Marcella, Colette) also stars as series regular Ram Arya, an Air Force fighter pilot from India, second-in-command to Emma and the crew’s medic.

Created by Andrew Hinderaker, the series is executive produced by showrunner Jessica Goldberg, Jason Katims, Matt Reeves, Andrew Hinderaker, Edward Zwick, Hilary Swank, Adam Kassan and Jeni Mulein.
