With the winter TCA events happening right now, this is a bit of news that has flown under the radar. NBC has given a pilot order to a new sci-fi drama titled, Debris. The show is written by former Fringe showrunner and Almost Human creator J.H. Wyman.
According to a description reported by Deadline, Debris follows two agents from two different continents, and two different mindsets, that must work together to investigate when wreckage from a destroyed alien spacecraft has mysterious effects on humankind. NBC has been hit or miss with sci-fi leaning series recently, but this one seems to have a clear sci-fi premise. The success of Manifest on the network should also be a good sign for fans wanting to see more sci-fi series on major networks.
No more information has been provided about Debris, but I will be keeping my eyes open for updates.
