Hulu has released photos of its upcoming astronaut drama The First starring Natascha McElhone and Sean Penn, and revealed that it will premiere on September 14th. Developed by House of Cards creator Beau Willimon, the series follows the first human Mars mission and the challenges of planetary colonization. Penn, in his first major TV role, plays astronaut Tom Hagerty and McElhone has the role of Laz Ingram, a visionary Elon Musk-type CEO of private space company Vista.

The streaming site hasn't released a trailer or plot details yet, but the first images show the characters strictly on Earth. "It's a story about the human spirit," said Willimon earlier. "About the cost of that vision, the danger and sacrifice -- emotional, psychological, and physical -- that's required to achieve it. How ordinary, imperfect people band together and overcome a myriad of obstacles to grasp the extraordinary."
