What is Away on Netflix about?

Away on Netflix follows the story of Emma Green and her elite astronaut crew as they attempt to become the first human beings to land safely on Mars.

The mission itself will take three years and there is no guarantee they will make it back alive.

As a result of her space mission, Emma has to leave behind her husband Matt (Josh Charles), who is a NASA astronaut working on the ground and their daughter Alexis (Talitha Bateman) behind.

The series was created by Andrew Hinderaker, with Jason Katims serving as executive producer and Jessica Goldberg as showrunner.

Away on Netflix was inspired by a 2014 Esquire article written by Chris Jones who covered American astronaut Scott Kelly’s year-long training and experience on the International Space Station with Russian cosmonaut Mikhail Momienko.

Katims said: “Executive producer Matt Reeves and I had both read an Esquire article about space by Chris Jones called Away.

“We really wanted to create a show that was in space, but one that was also deeply human, emotional, relatable, and really grounded in human emotion, rather than in science fiction, and we wanted to look at what it’s like to be away in different forms.

“We wound up bringing it to the writer Andrew Hinderaker who wrote a beautiful pilot script. He came up with this very personal way into it.

“It really is the story of Emma, played by Hilary Swank, not only leaving but leaving at a time when her family is in such crisis and perhaps when they need her the most.”
