added: Tue, Aug 28th '18

With great innovation comes great sacrifice. Sean Penn struggles with that notion as he prepares to lead a crew of astronauts on the first ever human mission to Mars in the new official trailer for "The First."

In his first regular TV gig, the two-time Oscar winner stars as Tom Hagerty, a veteran astronaut struggling with the idea of leaving his teenage daughter behind as he sets out to become the first man on Mars on a space mission that may very well change the fate of the human race.

The 2030-set Hulu original series, which also stars Natascha McElhone (Designated Survivor), Anna Jacoby-Heron (Finding Carter), LisaGay Hamilton (House of Cards), Keiko Agena (Gilmore Girls), Hannah Ware (Hitman: Agent 47), and Bill Camp (The Looming Tower), was created and written by Beau Willimon, the acclaimed creator of the award-winning Netflix drama "House of Cards."

Acclaimed Polish filmmaker and veteran TV director Agnieszka Holland (House of Cards, Treme, The Wire) is helming the first two installments of the eight-episode series, which is slated to premiere Friday, September 14th only on Hulu.

THE FIRST is created by Beau Willimon (House of Cards) and stars Sean Penn. Set in the near future (2030), this groundbreaking story explores the challenges of taking the first steps towards Mars. Viewers will get an intimate look at the dedicated characters trying to reach the unknown while dealing with the psychological and physical toll it takes to achieve the impossible.
