Channel 4 and Hulu are on a mission to Mars

The series is created and written by Beau Willimon (House of Cards) who will also serve as executive producer alongside Jordan Tappis.

The First will explore the challenges of taking the first steps toward interplanetary colonisation. Willimon said: “It’s a story about the human spirit and about our indomitable need to reach for unknown horizons. How ordinary, imperfect people band together and overcome a myriad of obstacles to grasp the extraordinary.”
