True Blood star Joe Manganiello is heading to the moon, as he has landed a major role in new sci-fi series Moonhaven.
Moonhaven, which is set 100 years in the future, will introduce us to Bella Sway (Emma McDonald), a lunar cargo pilot and smuggler who is accused of a crime and marooned on Moonhaven – a utopian community which has been built on the Moon in order to find solutions to the problems that are set to end civilisation on Earth.
Bella is soon drawn into a conspiracy to gain control of the artificial intelligence responsible for Moonhaven's miracles on this lunar Garden of Eden. She decides to team up with a local detective as they try to stop the forces that want to destroy Earth's last hope.
Manganiello is set to play former military operative Tomm Schultz, who serves as the right hand to Earth's lead diplomat to the Moon. When he is injected with a mind-altering drug, however, Tomm's ambitions will change dramatically.
Manganiello played werewolf Alcide Herveaux in vampire drama True Blood, while he also starred as Brad Morris in sitcom How I Met Your Mother and as bully Flash Thompson in the Tobey Maguire Spider-Man movies.
No air date has yet been revealed for Moonhaven.
