Defying Genre: Defying Gravity

Many noble professions get the television treatment; it's impossible to flip through the channels without finding shows about cops, lawyers, doctors, firemen, and even guys who make cakes. So why not astronauts?

Blog Spotlight: Defying Gravity Sinks To Earth Under The Weight Of Bad Drama

ABC debuted its space soap Defying Gravity last night, and our optimism that Ron Livingston could pull off the Astro-McDreamy role turned out to be sadly misplaced. Sadly, the space exploration fell flat, and the drama was dull. Spoilers below.

The main premise of ABC's new space drama starts off simple enough. Eight astronauts, four men and four women, are being sent on a six year mission, to explore the solar system and seven planets total. But the truth behind the mission is hidden behind the doors of Pod 4 and the mysterious Beta.

Blog Spotlight: Ron Livingston says 'Defying Gravity' is sci-fi, sci-fact, and super sexy

Ron Livingston leads the cast of the new futuristic TV space drama, Defying Gravity. He plays an astronaut who's carrying around some baggage from a previous mission. The show also has some interesting mysteries that'll be unraveling week to week. So expect a little feeling of Lost... in space.

"I loved doing this show," Livingston told entertainment reporter George Pennacchio of ABC7 in Los Angeles. "I'd love to get to do more of them, and I've got a hunch that we will."

Blog Spotlight: 'Defying Gravity' is an intriguing 'Lost'-like numbers game

It's strange to me what shows networks decide to stand firmly behind during the Upfront announcements, like those from a couple of months ago. ABC, for example, is putting a lot behind such new shows as Eastwick, Fast Forward and V. So far I'm wondering why they haven't made more of a push behind another new show, coming in August, called Defying Gravity. From what I've seen of the show's first two hours, it's damn good.

I'll quickly summarize the plot for you. The year is 2052 on Earth, and a mission aboard the ship Antares is about to be underway. This ship will take eight astronauts (four men, four women) from five different countries on a six-year mission to visit seven of the planets of our solar system. We learn about each of the people assigned to this mission through present day ...
