Show revolves around astronauts exploring origin of alien artifact

Netflix has ordered 10 episodes of the new sci-fi drama “Another Life,” the streaming giant said Thursday.

The series will star “Battlestar Galactica” alum Katee Sackhoff as an astronaut Niko Breckenridge leading a crew to explore the genesis of an alien artifact. Niko and her young crew face danger along the way, trying to make sure they’re not on a one-way mission. 

Aaron Martin (“Slasher,” “Saving Hope,” “Degrassi: The Next Generation”) created the series and will serve as showrunner. Halfire Entertainment, which also produced Netflix’s “Alias Grace,” will produce. Noreen Halpern, who also worked on “Alias Grace,” will executive produce.
