Sky One announce new original sci-fi drama, Intergalactic.

Sky have announced a brand new original drama - a sci-fi series called Intergalactic.

It is the 23rd Century and Earth’s space empire exiles its prisoners off-planet. Or at least they did until a crew of fierce and adventurous female crims break free and go on the run, heading… intergalactic. The ten-part Sky original production, from Moonage Pictures and Motion Content Group in association with Tiger Aspect Productions, starts shooting later this year.

Characterful, action-packed and at times outrageously funny, the show follows Ash, a young flight cadet falsely imprisoned before becoming embroiled in an audacious prison break-out. Across their perilous escape through space, this disparate gang of dynamic women fight, fall in love and betray each other. But one thing is for certain, the further they travel from Earth, the closer they come to understanding who they truly are.

Showrunner, Julie 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."

The announcement comes after Sky announced Cameron Roach has been appointed as Sky’s Director of Drama and Sky Studios.
