The Longmire alum teased that the 15-episode series is quite dirty, but not in the way you’d think.
“Like, physically dirty with mud. It’s still pretty Star Trek-y!” Wiseman previewed with a laugh. “The focus is not sex, drugs and rock ‘n’ roll, it’s really still the same sort of thrust. That being said, we can go a little darker with the characters. It’s more of an investigation of who these people are and the challenges that they’re faced with and how they’re going to persevere.”
Wiseman also shared the grueling stunts and training that several members of the cast have gone through while filming the show.
“I have had a couple days where I lost my body,” she revealed. “I did things where I ran for six hours. Or, like, things that Sonequa [Martin-Green] wasn’t working up a sweat [doing] that I was like, ‘Oh my god, no! When is it over?!’ But that’s also really exciting, because I’m doing stuff that I never imagined for myself.”
