Set in the near future, Netflix's Away follows Emma and her team of astronauts as they work to complete a high stakes mission, all the while their families wait for their return back home and face obstacles of their own.
The 10-episode drama ultimately uses the high stakes (and long travel times) of a space mission to illustrate how Emma must come to grips with the fact that she can no longer be the wife and parent that she was on Earth.
And much like the medical team on Grey's Anatomy, the astronauts' loved ones sometimes have to take a back seat as they work toward a common, often impossible-feeling goal. They are, in a sense, their own dysfunctional workplace family who must repeatedly put their lives in each other's hands — and yes, confront potentially messy romantic connections.
Produced by Friday Night Lights and Parenthood creator Jason Katmis, there are sure to be moments that do more than pull at your heartstrings.
But don't take our word for it, check out the trailer below to see for yourself.
