Relationship Status actress Anna Jacoby-Heron has been cast opposite Sean Penn and Natascha McElhone in THE FIRST. This will serve as a straight to series drama from Beau Willimon to premiere on Hulu in 2018. Willimon and his partner Jordan Tappis are executives producing the series.
Written by Willimon, The First follows the first-ever human mission to Mars, which explores the challenges encountered in taking the first steps towards colonization. The story not only follows the astronauts but the families and ground team still on Earth. Heron is rumored to be playing Penn’s daughter.
Heron co-starred on Finding Carter on MTV and recently appeared on season 2 episode 7 of Stranger Things. She is represented by Paradigm and Authentic Talent and Literary Management.
