Intergalactic will premiere on Sky One on Friday April 30th at 9pm, it has been announced.
Intergalactic is set at a time in the future where Earth has drastically changed and the entire population is now governed by a global authority, the Commonworld. It tells the story of rookie cop and galactic pilot, Ash, whose glittering career is ripped out from under her when she is falsely imprisoned. A fearless gang of high-security female prisoners hijack their transporter spaceship and set off into the galaxy in pursuit of freedom.

But one thing is for certain, the further they travel from Earth, the closer they come to understanding who they truly are.
