First Trailer for ‘SONA’ Teases Geek & Sundry’s New Sci-Fi Series on Alpha
Originally started as a wildly successful Kickstarter project, Geek & Sundry and Alpha, Legendary Digital Networks’ interactive streaming platform, have now acquired the upcoming sci-fi series, SONA. Created by Ashley Clements – the fan-favorite actress from the Emmy-winning series The Lizzie Bennet Diaries and Edgar Allan Poe’s Murder Mystery Dinner Party – through production company The Jigsaw Ensemble, SONA adds to the sci-fi offering of the entertainment platform’s lineup of original shows and content. Exclusive to Alpha members, SONA is a tale of adventure and hardship featuring a strong female lead with surprising plot twists.
SONA’s eponymous protagonist is Lieutenant Belyn Sona (Clements), a United Earth Space Corps officer in a future in which aliens are no longer welcome on Earth, including her husband (Brendan Bradley). The story finds our heroine trapped in a malfunctioning escape pod, uncovering through flashback the events and decisions that led to her isolation. This survival tale features a dramatic tour de force as we examine her psychological struggle against themes of mental health, immigration and betrayal.
SONA is an eight-episode series set to debut on August 22nd on Alpha. Check out the new trailer for SONA here:
