Introduction
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Defying Gravity is a multi-nationally produced space travel television science fiction drama series, first aired on August 2, 2009 on ABC and CTV and canceled in the autumn of 2009. Set in the year 2052, the series follows eight astronauts (four women and four men) from four countries on a six-year space mission through theSolar System, during which they are monitored from Earth via a real-time communication system. The series was pitched to networks as "Grey's Anatomy in space". On October 29, 2009 the show's creator James Parriott revealed how the show would have progressed in response to questions in a follow up interview about the show.

Premise

The program follows the adventures of eight astronauts on board the international spacecraft Antares, the next ambitious manned space mission after the Mars landing. The lives of the astronauts are being constantly recorded and broadcast back to Earth both as part of an ongoing documentary and as part of mission monitoring. In spite of a libido-suppressing device worn by each crew member, referred to as "HALO" for "Hormone Activated Libido Oppressors", romantic entanglements develop among some crew members. Further complicating their lives is a mysterious storage pod that contains something referred to as Beta, which is exerting an impact on their mission.

Development

The project was inspired by the BBC mockumentary miniseries Space Odyssey: Voyage to the Planets, broadcast on BBC One in 2004. The show was co-produced by the BBCFox Television Studios, and Omni Film Productions in association with Canadian broadcasters CTV Television NetworkSPACE, and German broadcasterProSieben.
