Battlestar Galactica alumna Katee Sackhoff is going back to space as the lead of Another Life. Netflix has given a 10-episode order to the sci-fi drama series, from Alias Grace producer Halfire Entertainment. Created by Aaron Martin (Slasher, Saving Hope, DeGrassi: The Next Generation), who also serves as showrunner, Another Life centers on astronaut Niko Breckinridge (Sackhoff) who is focused on searching for alien intelligence. She leads a crew on a mission to explore the genesis of an alien artifact. As Niko and her young crew investigate, they face unimaginable danger on what might very well be a one-way mission. Noreen Halpern executive produces for Halfire Entertainment. In addition to the award-winning Netflix original series Alias Grace, her series credits also include Rookie Blue and Haven. Sackhoff played Capt. Kara “Starbuck” Thrace on Sci Fi Channel’s hit space drama Battlestar Galactica. Another Life reunites her with Netflix. The actress is coming off a six-season run as the female lead of popular drama Longmire, which was picked up by Netflix following its shock cancellation by A&E. It aired as a Netflix original for Seasons 4-6. Sackhoff is repped by @unitedtalentagency and Bleu’s Leland LaBarre

Starbuck is going back in space. OK, not Starbuck. But Katee Sackhoff, who played the not-quite-legendary pilot in the reboot of SYFY's Battlestar Galactica has signed on to Another Life as "an astronaut on a mission to explore alien intelligence."

Or, as Netflix puts it:

Astronaut Niko Breckenridge (Katee Sackhoff) leads a crew on a mission to explore the genesis of an alien artifact. As she and her young crew investigate, they face unimaginable danger on what might very well be a one-way mission.

No release date yet, but this is going to be one we keep our eyes on.
