After an amazing run bringing the Frozen characters to life in ABC’s “Once Upon a Time”, pilot season is bringing great news for many of the ‘Once’ alumni. While former costar’s Elizabeth Lail and Elizabeth Mitchell have landed roles in the upcoming FreeForm series “Dead of Summer”, Georgina is headed to the CW for what is currently being called the “Untitled Mars Project”.
Georgina Haig is set as the female lead opposite Neal Bledsoe in The CW’s Untitled Mars Project pilot, from CBS TV Studios.
Written by Doris Egan (Reign), the thriller follows an explorer team that arrives on Mars to join the first human colony on the planet, only to discover that their predecessors have vanished. Led by a woman whose husband is among the missing, the colonists are forced to change their mission from exploration and settlement to investigation and survival, while navigating the hostile planet and their own personal demons.
Haig plays Gina Nolan, the mission’s botanist, a woman who is intense, motivated and sharp. Nolan’s a true explorer, believing it is the destiny of mankind to investigate the universe- but before she can become a Mars colonist, she must prove herself. Bledsoe plays Lewis, who’s charged with selecting members of the explorer team who will follow him to the Red Planet. Cast also includes Mouzam Makkar, Carl Beukes, Tongayi Chirisa and Peter Mark Kendall.
