Joe Manganiello (Love, Death & Robots) and Dominic Monaghan (LORD OF THE RINGS) star in AMC+'s new science fiction series, Moonhaven. The actors discuss the broad themes of the show and whether they’d consider living on another planet like their characters. Watch the interview below.
Dominic plays Paul, a Moon resident and police detective of MoonHaven, a hippie-like commune while Joe plays Tomm, an ex-soldier from Earth hired as a bodyguard for an Earth ambassador. Moonhaven is a utopian community on the Moon built to discover solutions that might serve Earth. However, this idyllic commune is not what it seems, and the same goes for Joe and Dominic's character.
Moonhaven premieres Thursday, July 7 on AMC+.
More about Moonhaven
Moonhaven from creator Peter Ocko (Lodge 49, Black Sails, Elementary). The series is set in a utopian colony on the moon that may hold the keys to preserving life on Earth, which has become increasingly perilous, and features an acclaimed ensemble cast including Emma McDonald (Queens of Mystery), Dominic Monaghan (Lost) Amara Karan (Doctor Who), Ayelet Zurer (Losing Alice), Joe Manganiello (True Blood), Kadeem Hardison (Black Monday), and Yazzmin Newell (The Last Tree). The first two episodes of the series will debut Thursday, July 7 exclusively on AMC+ with additional episodes dropping Thursdays, weekly.
Moonhaven centers on Bella Sway (McDonald), a lunar cargo pilot and smuggler 100 years in the future who finds herself accused of a crime and marooned on Moonhaven, a utopian community set on a 500 square mile Garden of Eden built on the Moon to find solutions to the problems that will soon end civilization on Mother Earth. A skeptic in Paradise, Bella is sucked into a conspiracy to gain control of the artificial intelligence responsible for Moonhaven's miracles and teams with a local detective to stop the forces that want to destroy Earth's last hope before they are destroyed themselves.
An AMC Studios production, Moonhaven is executive produced by Ocko and Deb Spera, who is a non-writing executive producer.
