Attention, Battlestar Galactica fans! Ronald D. Moore is heading back to the stars with a space drama for Apple.
For All Mankind had Moore, who is also working on Starz’s time travel romance Outlander, tasked to create and write while imagining what the world would be like if the global space race had never ended. (Sounds a bit like The Expanse, no?) Moore undertook the project with Fargo executive producers Matt Wolpert and Ben Nedivi for Tall Ship Productions, which also makes Outlander. The show was the third original scripted series ordered by Apple, who is getting into the content creation market via its newly-formed worldwide programming division.
