Peacock launched a while back with a large catalogue of NBC favorites, but as they expand into originals no one was prepared for a new original sci-fi series. Intergalactic is set to premiere on the streamer on May 13th with all 8 episodes, but you can watch the first official trailer for the series below.
Written by award-winning showrunner, Julie Gearey (“Prisoners’ Wives” “Secret Diary of a Call Girl”), the series tells the story of fearless young cop and galactic pilot, Ash Harper (“Savannah Steyn”), who has her glittering career ripped away from her after being wrongly convicted of a treasonous crime and exiled to a distant prison colony. But on the way there, Ash’s fellow convicts stage a mutiny and seize control of their prison transfer ship. With the flight crew dead, mob leader Tula Quik (“Sharon Duncan-Brewster”), is intent on reaching the free world – Arcadia – with her gang; and Ash is the only pilot who can get them there. Ash is forced to join them on the run towards a distant galaxy and an uncertain future.
