Synopsis

Mars Two is a comedy about six astronaut-rejects who agree to spend five years in a sealed martian habitat – braving sub-zero temperatures, recycled air, isolation, and a harsh alien environment. But there’s just one catch… They’re not on Mars, they’re in Canada.

The MARS TWO PROJECT is a Mars Colony Simulator and serves as a back up to the actual Mars One colony on the red planet. Mars Two works to troubleshoot problems and test procedures which could kill everyone on Mars, but will probably only sightly injure the crew of MARS TWO. They’re basically lab rats, only people don’t get all upset when you electrocute them.

First world rejects, Fourth world problems.

    A great amount of care was clearly put into building the sets and the acting team seems capable but it's hard to detect the comedic voice.

    Amazing production, but the story is left unclear and the comedy needs punching up.

    Dig the premise - not the strongest material to open with, though. Kinda dissapointed.

    Certainly is a different story line but thought it was going to be more lively and intense. Hope you make a comeback and bring what's needed in the next round.

    Your team and your cast have a lot of experience so I expect some exciting content each week. Will you be able to bring something new week to week to hold my interest?

    You have a VERY experienced team and: therefore the expectations are VERY high. I do not see that there is enough content to go week to week and become a CBC prime time series.

    Very cool concept. Love the consideration of budget with one location. Curious as to how this will play out over a full season. Big FAN of Sarah's!

    I like the style of the lead. Super deadpan, and I think unique enough to draw series length commitment from an audience.

    This is funny enough to keep me coming back for more. Please tell me you'll add a real Sarcastic Rover to the ensemble! Every fake outpost needs a bumbling, snarky robot.

    You guys have a very strong team and have obviously worked hard on the production design/addition of advisers, etc.

    However, for a clearly character-driven show (like any show set in an isolated scenario) we haven't got a chance to really meet the characters yet. Looking forward to more.

    The team here seems super talented and full of potential but I can't see this working out as a long term television show idea. Good pitch video though!

    The jokes are corny. I too don't see any series potential here. The idea is a bit far out (no pun intended).

    Great idea with a solidly professional set of writers.
    FFWD Weekly chatted with Mars Two co-creator Sarah Adams about why colonizing Mars is a terrible idea, as well details about the team's upcoming Hype event.
