Syfy’s pilot episode for the dramatic series High Moon just signed up Jonathan Tucker, Dana Davis, and Peter Macon. The threesome will be joining already announced cast members Chris Diamantopoulos and Jake Sandvig, with executive producer Adam Kane directing from a script by Jim Danger Gray. In addition, Charity Wakefield has committed to a guest starring role in the pilot now shooting in Vancouver.
The High Moon Plot:
High Moon is an imaginative, out-of-this-world adventure series exploring what happens when Earth establishes colonies to mine the Moon’s resources and discover a new form of life. Chaos erupts in a genuinely emotional, humorously thrilling and always unexpected fashion as the colonists of the Moon race to uncover this life form’s powerful secrets.
The Cast and Characters:
Diamantopoulos plays Ian, a chief investigator for the American federal government who is dispatched to the moon to figure out the causes of an explosion.
Sandvig plays his brother Marty, a felon being investigated for engaging in possible espionage and sabotage when the giant blast goes off near an area where he was working on the moon.
Macon will portray General Gale Lynn Winehart, a hard-as-nails American Army General able to kick the crap out of just about anybody. Possessing years of battle experience, he is not only savvy but cautious as he knows things are not always what they seem. He is intent on getting to the bottom of the explosion on the moon.
Davis will portray the cute, rugged, direct and charming Yama Winehart, daughter of General Winehart. She is also the first — and last — kid ever born on the moon. Pre-natal problems with artificial gravity mean she can never leave the moon, giving her a special connection with it and making her the moon’s first environmentalist.
Tucker will portray Stanslav “Stan” Stavin, a handsome and outgoing miner for the Russians. But there is more than meets the eye when it comes to this man.
Wakefield is portraying the smart and savvy Eve St. John-Smythe. Eve is British and has a rakish confidence that comes from being unfathomably rich. She is CEO of the world’s most profitable corporation and is responsible for opening up the moon by providing oxygen to the various countries there. This vision speaks to her fair-mindedness, but controlling who breathes and for what price is also a spigot the cunning businesswoman is happy to adjust to get what she wants. Her political posturing comes from her idealism, and ultimately what she wants is to make good on her family mission to make the moon accessible to everyone on earth.
