One of Apple's upcoming television shows is an unnamed sci-fi series from Battlestar Galactica developer Ronald D. Moore, which is currently in the casting stages.

According to Variety, several actors and actresses have inked deals to star in the show, which has been described as a series that will explore what would have happened had the global space race never ended.

Joel Kinnaman has signed on to play Edward Baldwin, a top NASA astronaut, while Michael Dorman and Sarah Jones will play Gordo and Tracy Stevens, a prominent NASA couple.

Kinnaman previously played Takeshi Kovacs in "Altered Carbon," along with Will Conway in "House of Cards." He's also known for roles in "Easy Money," "Suicide Squad," and "RoboCop."

Michal Dorman has been in "Patriot" and "Wonderland," while Sarah Jones has starred in "Damnation," "The Path," and "Alcatraz."

The show was created and written by Moore along with "Fargo" co-executive producers Matt Wolpert and Ben Nedivi. Moore is known for his work on shows like Battlestar Galactica," "Caprica," "Helix," and "Outlander."

Apple has more than a dozen original TV shows in the works, several of which are at the point where actors are being cast ahead of filming. Details on all of the shows that Apple has picked up can be found in the original content section of our Apple TV roundup.

Rumors have suggested the first of Apple's TV shows could potentially launch in March 2019, perhaps through an upcoming streaming television service.

Yet another series from Apple in which I have absolutely zero interest in.
Thank goodness you used that time and energy to go out of your way to let us all know how disinterested you were instead of simply watching something else!

Casting the guy who played Stephen Holder and Takeshi Kovacs = one of the better decisions Apple has made in quite some time.

Agreed!

Kinnaman is a great talented actor and I cannot wait for his Earth based series of BSG!
“/s” means the preceding statement was meant to be sarcastic. FYI.
