Apple celebrates Apollo 11 anniversary with a new peek at For All Mankind

As you’ve probably gathered from the Internet today, this is the 50th anniversary of the historic launch of Apollo 11. Tech giant Apple, which has recently gotten into TV production, has released a new, short sneak-peek video for its space-themed  series to tie in with the milestone.

This marks the second trailer for the show, but this one has a different focus than the one we saw last month.

In it, the showrunners discuss the motivation behind making , the themes it will cover, and more in a series of interviews interspersed with footage. Some of the clips are new, but many are recycled from the previous trailer.

However, those interviewed include (among others) co-creator and executive producer Ronald D. Moore—best known as the creator and showrunner of 2004’s ,  on Starz, and a longtime writer and producer for  and —Maril Davis (who wrote many of ‘s best episodes), and Michael Okuda, who famously headed up art direction for the 24th-century-era Star Trek series. Those are obviously sci-fi fan favorites, so it’s good to hear them talking about how space exploration can inspire.

takes place in an alternate recent history wherein the Soviet Union beat the United States to putting a man on the Moon. The show depicts the fallout and ensuing greatly amplified space race, which apparently plays out very differently than it did in history. The series will premiere on Apple TV+, the streaming TV subscription service Apple announced at its services-focused event in March.

We still don’t have a premiere date for the series, but the trailer makes it appear that much of has already been shot. So we’re guessing that it’s just a matter of when Apple launches the service itself. The company promised to launch Apple TV+ this September.
