Its storyline ties together disjointed plot threads and explains unanswered questions from the Amazon Prime series in multiple ways to expand fans’ appreciation for the provocative source material.
“Andy has a great track record and his story plans are unlike anything we’ve seen before. It’s going to be really outstanding,” said Abraham and Frank, who also served as executive producers of the Prime Video series.

“I am honored to be a part of this project,” Rubina said in the same press release. “Space” is a fascinating science fiction story, authentic and beautifully executed.
