The key art for For All Mankind. [credit:
As you’ve probably gathered from the Internet today, this is the 50th anniversary of the historic launch of Apollo 11. Tech giant Apple, which has recently gotten into TV production, has released a new, short sneak-peek video for its space-themed For All Mankind series to tie in with the milestone.
This marks the second trailer for the show, but this one has a different focus than the one we saw last month. In it, the showrunners discuss the motivation behind making For All Mankind, the themes it will cover, and more in a series of interviews interspersed with footage. Some of the clips are new, but many are recycled from the previous trailer.
However, those interviewed include (among others) co-creator and executive producer Ronald D. Moore—best known as the creator and showrunner of 2004’s Battlestar Galactica, Outlander on Starz, and a longtime writer and producer for Star Trek: The Next Generation and Star Trek: Deep Space Nine—Maril Davis (who wrote many of Battlestar Galactica‘s best episodes), and Michael Okuda, who famously headed up art direction for the 24th-century-era Star Trek series. Those are obviously sci-fi fan favorites, so it’s good to hear them talking about how space exploration can inspire.
