Priscilla Quintana (Traffik) is set as the lead in Pandora, the CW’s upcoming summer sci-fi action series, from Mark A. Altman and Steve Kriozere’s (ABC’s Castle) Radioactive Fishtank, Vital Signs Entertainment and Starlings Television.
Rounding out the series regular cast are Oliver Dench (Ride), Raechelle Banno (Home and Away), John Harlan Kim (The Librarians), Ben Radcliffe (The Evermoor Chronicles), Banita Sandhu (October), Martin Bobb-Semple (Free Rein) and Noah Huntley (The Royals, 28 Days Later). Production is underway in Bulgaria. A premiere date has not yet been set.
Set in the year 2199, Pandora centers on Jax (aka Pandora), played by Quintana, a resourceful young woman who has lost everything after the death of her parents but finds a new life at Earth’s Space Training Academy where she and her friends learn to defend the Galaxy from threats, both alien and human. When secrets about the nature of her own identity begin to surface, she must uncover the truth, and whether she will be humanity’s savior or the instrument of its destruction.
Quintana’s Jax is super smart, naturally inquisitive, empowered, and with a quick acerbic wit. As traumatic as the death of her parents was for her, her world will be turned upside down even more when she learns her whole life is a lie.
