Apple has unveiled the first full look at the new original series “For All Mankind”, coming to the company’s streaming service Apple TV Plus.
Though there isn’t a launch date or price for the new streaming service yet, Apple is hoping to court subscribers with high-calibre content like “For All Mankind” and other projects backed by everyone from Oprah Winfrey to Steven Spielberg. Created by “Battlestar Galactica” showrunner Ron Moore, “For All Mankind” aims for the stars with Joel Kinnaman.
Teasing the space race, the full-length “For All Mankind” trailer sets up the competition between the U.S. and Soviet Russia in the 1960s and 1970s as the countries race to the moon. But the new series comes with a twist: what if the U.S. didn’t make it to the moon first? With an intriguing new alternative history presented, the space race doesn’t come to a close the moon landing and instead spurs the U.S. on to new technological heights.
“We thought it was about being first. Turns out the stakes are much bigger than that,” the trailer announces as each entity sets its sights on the galaxy and beyond in the sci-fi drama as it teases Mars landings and an all-female astronaut team.
