Killer Women came and went pretty fast, but Tricia Helfer’s got another series on the way and it looks far more promising. Ascension is a six-hour mini-series that goes down on a starship carrying 600 people on a mission to save the human race by populating a new world. Helfer plays Viondra Denniger, a beautiful but manipulative power broker aboard the starship Ascension.
The show’s very first trailer just dropped and even though the piece is only 30 seconds long, it still offers up a fairly comprehensive sense of the Ascension’s mission as well as an effective tease of what sends it into chaos. Hit the jump to check out the Ascension trailer for yourself. The mini-series debuts on Syfy on November 24th at 9/8c and also stars Brian Van Holt, Andrea Roth, Brandon P. Bell, Tiffany Lonsdale and PJ Boudousque.
Here’s the official synopsis for Ascension:
In 1963, the U.S. government launched a covert space mission sending hundreds of men, women and children on a century-long voyage aboard the starship Ascension to populate a new world. Nearly 50 years into the journey, as they approach the point of no return, a mysterious murder of a young woman causes the ship’s population to question the true nature of their mission.
