Hilary Swank and Ray Panthaki are astronauts on the first mission to Mars in an early look at Netflix series Away.

Swank plays American astronaut Emma Green as she prepares to lead an international crew to the planet, leaving behind her husband Matt, played by Josh Charles, and teenage daughter Lex, played by Talitha Bateman.

As the crew’s journey into space intensifies, their personal dynamics and the effects of being away from their loved ones back on Earth become increasingly complex.

The series will launch on Netflix on September 4.
