Brian Van Holt plays William Denninger, Captain of the starship Ascension. He sat down with press and gave us some hints about the murder mystery that the series begins with along with discussing how the “Upstairs/Downstairs” social system evolved aboard the ship. Reproduction is strictly monitored and enforced because they’re all living aboard a closed system that can only sustain a certain number of inhabitants without the system breaking down.
Van Holt sums up the show as something for everyone, stating that it’s an “… intellectual show as well as a very sexy show. I would watch it.” I am definitely taking his advice.
