DESCRIPTION:
(from Syfy's press release, August 2014) Premieres Monday, November 24 at 9PM -- Ascension is an ambitious original drama following a covert U.S. space mission launched in the 1960's that sent hundreds of men, women and children on a century-long voyage aboard the starship Ascension to populate a new world. Half way into their journey, as they approach the point of no return, the mysterious murder of a young woman causes the ship's population to question the true nature of their mission. The series stars Brandon P. Bell (Hollywood Heights) as the confident and capable First Officer Aaron Gault, Brian Van Holt (Cougar Town, The Bridge) as the eponymous ship's captain William Denninger and Tricia Helfer (Battlestar Galactica) as Viondra Denniger, the Captain's beautiful, manipulative and dangerous wife (who also serves as the ship's Chief Steward). Ascension also stars Al Sapienza as Councilman Rose, Tiffany Lonsdale as Chief Astronomer Emily Vanderhaus, Andrea Roth as the ship's head doctor Juliet Bryce, Jacqueline Byers as her daughter Nora Bryce, PJ Boudousque as Nora's love interest, James Toback, Ryan Robbins as Safety Officer (and Emily's husband) Duke Vanderhaus and Gil Bellows as Harris Enzmann, the son of the founder of the Ascension mission. Ascension is executive produced by Philip Levens (Smallville) and Jason Blum (The Normal Heart, Stranded, The River, film franchises Paranormal Activity and The Purge) along with Ivan Fecan, Tim Gamble and Brett Burlock on behalf of Sea To Sky Studios. The event series will be co-financed and distributed by Universal Cable Productions and Lionsgate Television.
