Control is a pilot for a drama series set in the Mission Control of a manned space mission, written as a hybrid of Apollo 13 and The West Wing in style and tone.
An International coalition has come together to send the first humans to Mars–but a race is on with a Chinese mission to see who gets there first.
When a military stand-off between the US and China threatens to start a war, Flight Director Peter Lacey must fight to keep his astronauts from becoming pawns in the Earthly conflict. But a secret has been kept from him that threatens the lives of both crews, who hang in the balance 150 million miles from home…
Unlike Pioneer One, we’re making this specifically for the 2012 New York Television Festival where the P1 pilot won Best Drama in 2010. This year will see buyers like Syfy, IFC, USA Network, and others, and we hope to get them interested in both properties. Please help support our Kickstarter campaign for Control to help us make it happen: http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/pioneeronetv/control-a-new-pilot-from-the-creators-of-pioneer-o
