Los Angeles, March 10, 2021 – Starlings Television’s futuristic adventure drama, Pandora, has scored a Saturn Awards nomination for Best Sci-Fi Television Series in a genre field dominated by franchise titles.
The socially relevant CW series, which can also be seen in the U.S. on Amazon Prime and has been sold in more than 100 territories worldwide, served as one of only two self-starters on the nominations list – the other being Raised by Wolves (HBO Max) – nominated to compete for the coveted title. They are vying against pre-existing franchises Westworld (HBO), Star Trek Discovery and Star Trek Picard (CBS All Access), Lost in Space (Netflix) and Doctor Who (BBC America).
Pandora is set in 2199 when, after the death of her parents, college-aged Jax is forced to find a new home at the Space Academy where she creates a surrogate family among her fellow students. While there, she finds her calling as a spy, and while her missions and the search for the truth about her parents’ death will take her to the furthest reaches of the Galaxy, Jax will discover that the biggest surprises are hidden inside herself. With power she can’t imagine, Jax could either be humanity’s salvation or our destruction.
