‘The Ark’ Trailer: Crew Must Rely on Each Other to Survive in New Syfy Series (VIDEO)

Syfy has revealed the premiere date and trailer for its upcoming science fiction series, The Ark, from Dean Devlin and Jonathan Glassner. It will premiere on Wednesday, February 1 at 10/9c.

According to Syfy, The Ark “takes place 100 years in the future when planetary colonization missions have begun as a necessity to help secure the survival of the human race. The first of these missions on a spacecraft known as Ark One encounters a catastrophic event causing massive destruction and loss of life. With more than a year left to go before reaching their target planet, a lack of life-sustaining supplies, and loss of leadership, the remaining crew must become the best versions of themselves to stay on course and survive.”
