Josh Charles Joins Hilary Swank in Netflix Series Away

-

Josh Charles (The Good WifeSports NightDead Poets Society) will star opposite Hilary Swank in Away, a new Netflix series about a treacherous space mission that is — at its core — about hope, humanity, and how we need one another to achieve the impossible.

Josh Charles will play Matt Logan, a NASA engineer whose wife is commanding the first mission to Mars. He faces the already enormous challenges of dealing with the mission from home, while trying to raise their teenage daughter on his own, but when he goes through a life-altering experience in the first episode he will understand the true cost of what it means to be away from each other.

Two-time Academy Award-winning actress Hilary Swank (Boys Don’t Cry, Million Dollar Baby, PS I Love You) plays astronaut Emma Green in the 10-episode drama series. Swank will also serve as an executive producer.

Away centers on Emma Green, an American astronaut who must leave her husband and teenage daughter behind to command an international space crew embarking upon a treacherous mission.

The series is loosely inspired by the Chris Jones article from Esquire, which documented renowned astronaut Scott Kelly’s mission to space.

Jessica Goldberg (The Path) serves as showrunner, writer, and executive producer.
Ed Zwick (Nashville, Jack Reacher: Never Go Back, The Last Samurai) will direct the first episode and serves as an executive producer.

Andrew Hinderaker wrote the first episode and serves as an executive producer. He is the creator of the series. Jason Katims (Friday Night Lights, Parenthood) serves as writer and executive producer. The executive producers include Matt Reeves (Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, Cloverfield, Felicity), Adam Kassan, Michelle Lee, and Jeni Mulein.

The studios behind the project are Universal Television, True Jack Productions, and 6th & Idaho.
