Once Upon a Time‘s Josh Dallas isn’t taking any time away from series television following the end of that fantasy series. Dallas is returning with a starring role in NBC’s new dramatic series Manifest from executive producer Robert Zemeckis. The series will air as part of NBC’s primetime lineup during the 2018-2019 season, debuting in the Mondays at 10pm ET/PT spot after The Voice.
As the network sets its schedule, they’ve released the first official trailer and photos from Manifest.
In addition to Josh Dallas, Manifest stars Melissa Roxburgh, Athena Karkanis, J.R. Ramirez, Luna Blaise, Jack Messina, and Parveen Kaur. The series has Jeff Rake (The Mysteries of Laura, The Tomorrow People) involved as writer and executive producer. David Frankel (The Devil Wears Prada) will direct and executive produce the show’s pilot. Jack Rapke is also on board as an executive producer.
Manifest is a Warner Bros. Television and Compari Entertainment production.
The Manifest Plot: When Montego Air Flight 828 landed safely after a turbulent but routine flight, the crew and passengers were relieved. Yet in the span of those few hours, the world had aged five years and their friends, families and colleagues, after mourning their loss, had given up hope and moved on. Now, faced with the impossible, they’re all given a second chance. But as their new realities become clear, a deeper mystery unfolds and some of the returned passengers soon realize they may be meant for something greater than they ever thought possible.
From Robert Zemeckis and Jack Rapke comes an emotionally rich, unexpected journey into a world grounded in hope, heart and destiny.
