Eve, played by Natalie Zea (Justified, The Following) and her son played by Jack Martin (All Rise), fall through the sinkhole and find themselves transported to a primaeval world, along with a group of strangers, who they must work together with in order to survive and hopefully get home.

Whilst her estranged husband Gavin played by Eoin Macken (Merlin) and their daughter Izzy played by Zyra Gorecki are left on the surface trying to make sense of what is happening with the world.

Reflecting on the series, Applebaum said: “It’s a big adventure show, a little bit of Lost, a little bit of Land of the Lost. But it’s also a deeply emotional story about this fractured family that’s trying to reunite.”


Is there a trailer?

NBC released a trailer for thrilling sci-fi drama back in 2021, which Paramount have since shared on Twitter.

The one minute video features a giant sinkhole, set along to the dramatic dialogue of Natalie Zea’s character, Eve Harris.
