Missions (OCS 2017, Hélène Viviès, Clément Aubert)

Scifi drama series Missions is set in the near future and focuses on the crew of the first manned mission to Mars.

The mission is launched by the eccentric Swiss billionaire William Meyer (Mathias Mlekuz). Meyer himself forms part of the eight-strong crew, which also includes a famous married Astronaut couple (played by Giorgia Sinicorni and Christophe Vandevelde) plus mission psychiatrist Jeanne Renoir (Hélène Viviès, pictured) – a last-minute addition to the team.

After 10 months of space travel, the crew is one day away from reaching Mars when they receive bad news – they’ve been overtaken by a rival American mission, and will no longer be first to land on the planet. When a message of distress is then received from the American crew, the French team’s exploration mission becomes a rescue attempt.

After a chaotic landing on Mars, the team discover a survivor. But he is not from the American mission. He’s Russian – a cosmonaut named Vladimir Komarov, who died on a mission to space in 1967…
