National Geographic Channel is hoping to encourage viewers to take a journey to the Red Planet with plans for a short-form scripted prequel series to precede the November launch of “Mars.”
The online “Before Mars” series will tell the stories of two central characters from “Mars,” Joon and Hana Seung, twin sisters on Earth struggling to fit in to the rural town where they have relocated with their mother. One of them finds a ham radio that allows them to develop a friendship with a female astronaut on the International Space Station.
