The series centers on two androids tasked with raising human children on a mysterious virgin planet. As the burgeoning colony of humans threatens to be torn apart by religious differences, the androids learn that controlling the beliefs of humans is a treacherous and difficult task.

The cast includes Amanda Collin (A Conspiracy of FaithA Horrible Woman), Abubakar Salim (FortitudeJamestown), Winta McGrath (AloftRed Dog: True Blue), Niamh Algar (The VirtuesCalm With Horses), Jordan Loughran (The InfiltratorEmerald City), Matias Varela (NarcosPoint Break), Felix Jamieson (Game of ThronesThe Ghost), Ethan Hazzard (The Long SongDamned), Aasiya Shah (Call the MidwifeUnforgotten), Ivy Wong (Star Wars: Rogue OneMaleficent 2) and Travis Fimmel (Vikings).

As the trailer shows, the ark is coming, filled with religious zealots who consider androids an abomination. The VFX looks great, and the list of studios participating is extensive:  Barnstorm, BUF, Cosa, CVD / Crafty Apes, Exceptional Minds, Mind & Machine, Mr X, Pixel Magic, Pixomondo, Shad, Spin VFX, UPP, and Visionary FX Studios.

The series is produced by Scott's Scott Free Productions, with Scott, writer and creator Aaron Guzikowski, David W. Zucker (The Man in the High Castle), Jordan Sheehan (The Terror), Adam Kolbrenner (Prisoners) and Mark Huffam (The Martian) serving as executive producers.
