The Expanse is an American space opera / mystery science fiction dramatelevision series on Syfy, based on the series of novels by James S. A. Corey. Set in a future where humanity has colonized the Solar System, it follows United Nations under secretary Chrisjen Avasarala (Shohreh Aghdashloo), police detective Miller (Thomas Jane), and ship’s officer Jim Holden (Steven Strait) and his crew as they unravel a conspiracy that threatens peace across the System and the survival of humanity.
Two hundred years in the future, in a fully colonized Solar System, police detective Josephus Miller (Thomas Jane), born in the asteroid belt, is given the assignment to find a missing young woman, Julie Andromeda Mao (Florence Faivre). Meanwhile, James Holden (Steven Strait), the Executive Officer of the ice trawler Canterbury, is involved in a tragic incident that threatens to destabilize Earth, Mars and the Belt. Far away from their struggles in space, Chrisjen Avasarala (Shohreh Aghdashloo), a United Nations executive, works to prevent war between Earth and Mars by any means necessary. Soon, the three find out that the missing woman and the ice trawler’s fate are part of a vast conspiracy that threatens all humanity.
Founded two years ago by games veteran Ryan Dening and movie concept artist and matte painter Tim Warnock, The Expanse was North Front’s biggest job to date, calling on the duo to create an ultra-detailed distant future grounded in today’s technology.
