“Moonhaven isn’t a people, it’s a purpose,” says a member of the moon-bound community in the teaser trailer for AMC Plus’ new suspense thriller, Moonhaven.
The series comes from creator and showrunner Peter Ocko, who also was behind such shows as Lodge 49, Black Sails and Elementary. It’s set on an utopian colony on the moon where people are flocking as life on Earth crumbles.
The show stars Emma McDonald as Bella, a lunar cargo pilot and smuggler who finds herself accused of a crime and marooned in the community. She soon finds herself involved in a conspiracy to gain control of the artificial intelligence that makes Moonhaven possible and teams with a local detective to stop the heist from taking place.
Besides McDonald, the series also stars Dominic Monaghan (Lost), Amara Karan (Doctor Who), Ayelet Zurer (Losing Alice), Joe Manganiello (True Blood), Kadeem Hardison (Black Monday) and Yazzmin Newell (The Last Tree).
Moonhaven is executive produced by Ocko and Deb Spera, who is a non-writing executive producer. It’s produced by AMC Studios.
The series’ first two episodes will drop on AMC Plus on Tuesday, July 7 with additional episodes dropping each week on Thursday.
