Lionsgate Home Entertainment has added Ascension to its roster, scheduling a DVD release of the television miniseries for October.
Inspired by the real-life Project Orion space mission that thrived under President John F. Kennedy, the SyFy Channel’s mystery miniseries “Ascension: A Miniseries Event” is the stylized deep-orbit drama that follows a group of brave men and women as they search for Man’s next home.
In 1963, the U.S. government launched a covert space mission sending hundreds of men, women and children on a century-long voyage aboard the starship Ascension to populate a new world. Nearly 50 years into the journey, as they approach the point of no return, a mysterious murder of a young woman causes the ship’s population to question the true nature of their mission.
The release will also contain the Featurette “Ascension: A Behind the Scenes Look”.
“Ascension” will be released on October 13 for $24.98.
