The video is a preview of new drama series ‘Outcasts’, starring Hermione Norris, Eric Mabius, Liam Cunningham, Ashley Walters, Daniel Mays and Amy Manson, coming soon to BBC One.
Set in 2040 on a recently-discovered planet, this drama tells of the dilemmas, loves and lives of a group of people setting up a new world. This life-sustaining planet is now home to the surviving population from Earth. Here there is a chance to start again, to bring the lessons learned from Earth and to put them into action on a new planet.
The series begins on the day the last known transporter from Earth arrives, prompting great excitement on the new planet – who is on board? Friends and loved ones? Important supplies and news from Earth? But also many questions – will the new people bring the problems of Earth with them? Will the mistakes that destroyed Earth be repeated? Will the arrival of a new, would-be leader, rock the fragile and precarious equilibrium of the fresh, unified and courageous new world? And, most importantly of all, how do is a new and better world created?
Looks like Earth 2 to me, and that was a great show.
