Apple has been accumulating a hefty stack of original TV projects over the past few years from the likes of Steven Spielberg, Damien Chazelle, and Battlestar Galactica's Ronald D. Moore – the latter of whom is responsible for the upcoming series For All Mankind. Not only is this trailer the first sneak peek at Moore's series, but it's also the very first trailer for an Apple original series. And we gotta say, it doesn't look too shabby:
As with Amazon's The Man in the High Castle, Moore's series is a bit of revisionist historical fiction that explores an interesting hypothesis centered around America's relationship with a rival country: What if the Soviet Union landed on the moon first? THE MIND BOGGLES. Judging by the trailer, a few things would happen: Newspaper headlines would be weird as hell, America would become more competitive (shenanigans!), and women would say crazy things like "I'm going to be an astronaut!" approximately 20 years earlier. Mass hysteria, et al. Headlined by Joel Kinnaman, For All Mankind is described as follows:
Told through the lives of NASA astronauts, engineers and their families, For All Mankind presents an aspirational world where NASA and the space program remained a priority and a focal point of our hopes and dreams.
The series, which premieres when Apple TV+ launches sometime this fall, also stars Michael Dorman, Wrenn Schmidt, Shantel VanSanten, Sarah Jones, Jodi Balfour, Nate Corddry, and Michael Harney.
