Hoechlin, Chatwin and More Join Netflix Sci-Fi Series Another Life

Tyler Hoechlin, Justin Chatwin, Samuel Anderson and Elizabeth Faith Ludlow have boarded the Netflix sci-fi drama series Another Life, from creator/showrunner Aaron Martin (Slasher, Saving Hope, Degrassi: The Next Generation) and producer Noreen Halpern (Alias Grace) through her Halfire Entertainment shingle, both of whom are executive producing.

The four join previously announced Katee Sackhoff and Selma Blair. Prolific television director Omar Madha will direct the first two episodes of the 10-episode series, which Netflix ordered to series last April.

Another Life centers on astronaut Niko Breckinridge (Sackhoff), who is focused on searching for alien intelligence. She leads a crew on a mission to explore the genesis of an alien artifact. As Niko and her young crew investigate, they face unimaginable danger on what might very well be a one-way mission.

Hoechlin (Supergirl, Can You Keep A Secret, Bigger, Everybody Wants Some) plays Ian Yerxa, the former commander of The Salvare space explorations ship, who loses the post to Niko.

Chatwin (Shameless, Orphan Black) plays Erik Wallace, part of the United States Interstellar Command, dedicated to finding intelligent life out in the universe and husband of Commander Niko Breckenridge (Sackhoff).

Anderson (Loaded, Doctor Who, Trollied) plays William, a holographic interface of a sentient A.I. Neither a futuristic Tin Man, nor a robot who pines to be human, William is a new form of life with the knowledge of all humanity at his disposal.

Ludlow (The Walking Dead, Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2, Godzilla: King of the Monsters) plays Cas Isakovic, Niko’s second-in-command and staunchest ally, filled with courage and moral conviction.

Omar Madha’s credits include the series Scorpion, Turn, 24: Live Another Day, Person of Interest, The Blacklist and the pilot of Dick Wolf’s Law & Order: UK.
