As you probably have gathered from the internet today, this 50th anniversary of the historic launch of Apollo 11. Tech's gigantic Apple, which has recently entered television production, has released a new, short talk title video for its space theme For the whole of humanity series to attach to the milestone.
This marks the other trailer for the show, but this has a different focus than we saw last month. In the showrunners discuss the motivation behind making For All Mankind the topics it will cover, and more in a series of interviews focused on recording. Some of the clips are new, but many are recycled from the previous trailer.
However, they are interviewed among other contributing and performing producer Ronald D. Moore, best known as the creator and showrunner of 2004 19459013 Battlestar Galactica Outlander at Starz, and a Star Trek: Deep Space Nine -Maril Davis (who wrote many of Battlestar Galactica his best episodes), And Michael Okuda, who famously led the art direction of the Star Trek series from the 24th century. There are obviously sci-fi tabs, so it's good to hear them talk about how space research can inspire.
For All Mankind takes place in an alternative recent story where the Soviet Union beat the United States to put a man on the moon. The show shows the fallout and the subsequent heavily reinforced race, which apparently plays out very differently than it did in history. The series will premiere on Apple TV +, the streaming subscription service Apple announced on its service-focused event in March.
We still do not have a premiere date for the series, but the trailer makes it look like much of For all of humanity has already been shot. So we're guessing it's just about when Apple starts the service itself. The company promised to launch Apple TV + in September.
