NBC has revealed the premiere date for its newest sci-fi drama Debris, from Fringe producer J.H. Wyman.
NBC announced the series during its first Television Critics Association (TCA) virtual panel. In addition to teasing the upcoming series and unveiling the premiere date, the Debris team also talked parallels to Fringe.
Like Fringe, Debris follows government officials as they investigate when wreckage from a destroyed alien spacecraft has mysterious effects on humankind. While the series will feature different stories driven by the odd effects of the alien leftovers, Debris will see the relationship between the two leads develop and gain complexity as the show continues.
UK stars Riann Steele (Holby City, Ant Man &Wasp) will star as MI6’s Finola Jones, a classic rule follower, an agent with MI6 who is partnered with Bryan Beneventi (Jonathan Tucker) to investigate strange occurrences and Gabrielle Ryan (Bonding, The Haves, and the Have Nots) is set for a key recurring role, Ryan will play Dee Dee, Finola’s (Steele) younger sister who is the apple of her father’s eye and struggling to get her life together in London.
Ryan can be seen on Netflix’s Bonding opposite Zoe Levin and on Tyler Perry’s The Haves and the Have Nots on OWN. Ryan is repped by Buchwald, Luber Roklin and Suzy Brierley in the UK.
Wyman executive produces through his Frequency Films alongside Jason Hoffs. Legendary and Universal Television co-produces with Frequency Films. “There’s always going to be my DNA in the show,” Wyman, who serves as executive producer and showrunner said. “But it’s definitely its own thing.”
Debris will premiere on Monday, March 1 at 10 p.m. in the US. So far nothing has been announced for the UK.
