For All Mankind trailer: Ronald D. Moore brings alt-history space race to Apple TV+


What if the Soviet Union landed on the moon first? That’s the question posed by For All Mankind, an upcoming Apple TV+ streaming series.

Apple TV launched a first-look trailer for For All Mankind, a new series that will stream on the upcoming streaming service Apple TV+ when it’s released. The series was created by Battlestar Galactica executive producer Ronald D. Moore, Mark Wolpert (Fargo), and Ben Nedivi (The Umbrella Academy).

As the trailer shows, the 1960s and 70s-set series envisions what the United States would do if the Soviet Union was the first country to put a man on the moon. The clip begins with the devastating news and shows NASA astronauts and engineers springing into action to respond to the situation. The trailer also nods to the discovery of water on the moon and the inclusion of female astronauts.

The 10-episode first season stars Joel Kinnaman (The Killing), Michael Dorman (Patriot),  Wrenn Schmidt (The Looming Tower), Shantel VanSanten (Shooter), Sarah Jones (Damnation), and Jodi Balfour (Quarry).

For All Mankind boasts the first trailer to drop for any Apple TV+ show, according to a report from Deadline. Apple has yet to announce an official date for the release of its new streaming service or its cost. However, it has said it will be available in the fall.

The series looks to offer a fascinating story on a grand scale. Given the visually impressive, compelling space story Moore told with Battlestar Galactica, For All Mankind should be in good hands.

Although the question remains: at a time when NASA has become far less of a priority to America, will the show resonate with audiences? The series seeks to invoke the country’s aspirations during the space race, and this alternative history could make for thrilling television. Whether that’s enough to get subscribers to sign up for Apple TV+, though, remains to be seen.
