Hulu will be releasing a sci-fi drama sometime in 2018 called, “The First.” This series takes place in the future, around the time of the first human mission to the planet Mars. It is a look at the human race’s need and ultimately, their attempt to colonize another planet.
Creator Beau Millimon stated in an official press release issued by Hulu,
“It’s a story about the human spirit. About our indomitable need to reach for unknown horizons. About people working toward the greatest pioneering achievement in human history. And about the cost of that vision, the danger and sacrifice — emotional, psychological, and physical — that’s required to achieve it. How ordinary, imperfect people band together and overcome a myriad of obstacles to grasp the extraordinary.”
The series has a lofty $54.6 million budget and is set to begin production in New Orleans this fall.
