Hulu has revealed the trailer for its new Sci-fi series, The First, starring Sean Penn and Natascha McElhone. The series is set in the near-future and zeroes in on a crew of astronauts attempting to become the first humans on Mars.
Under the direction of visionary aerospace magnate Laz Ingram (McElhone), the crew contends with peril and personal sacrifice as they undertake the greatest pioneering feat in human history.
The most interesting bit about the new series, judging by the trailer at least, is the way it has been shot. Looking very close to a National Geographic special, The First seems like a documentary brought to life, which is an interesting look to say the least.
The First arrives on Hulu in September and also stars Rey Lucas, LisaGay Hamilton, and James Ransone.
