Maybe Hilary Swank should start knitting thick winter socks, because the US broadcaster ABC commissioned the series Alaska shortly before Upfronts. You can read here why Swank might not need so many warm socks after all.

What is the Alaska series about?

In the US series Alaska, Hilary Swank plays Eileen Fitzgerald, a recently disgraced reporter who leaves her dissipated life in the heart of New York City to join a daily newspaper in Anchorage, Alaska in search of personal and… to make professional reparations.

Who are the main characters of the series Alaska?

The US series joins Swank as Jeff Perry as Stanley Cornik, Matt Malloy as Bob Young, Meredith Holzman as Claire Muncy, Grace Dove as Rosalind Friendly, Pablo Castelblanco as Gabriel Martin, Ami Park as Jieun Park and Craig Frank as Austin Greene see.

For example, Hilary Swank might be known from the Netflix series Away, maybe also from the series The One Percent and Trust. In addition, she starred in the films “million dollar baby“, “insomnia” and “PS I Love You” With.

Jeff Perry could be seen in the series One Dollar and Scandal. Matt Malloy was last seen in the productions I Love That For You and Alpha House. Series junkies know Craig Frank from the series The Messengers and Mixology, for example.

Where is the series Alaska filmed anyway?

Well, the pilot episode of the series “Alaska“ was created in the Canadian city of Vancouver. Actually, no fictional series are filmed in Anchorage, the largest city in the 49th state of the United States. Vancouver or other Canadian cities usually have to put up with their looks here. However, it has happened that after shooting the pilot episode, the shooting for the other episodes was postponed. In the case of Vancouver, then mostly to the Canadian east coast.

So maybe Hilary Swank doesn’t need to knit thick socks after all. And if you think that knitting is just a no-brainer, well…

Who is behind the series Alaska?

The series “Alaska‘ by Tom McCarthy. The series is executive produced by Bert Salke, Hilary Swank, Kyle Hopkins and Melissa Wells. The production companies are 20th Television, Co-lab21 and slow bangs.

Series creator Tom McCarthy also worked on the series 13 Reasons Why and The Loudest Voice.

A start date for the series “Alaska‘ is of course not yet known. As soon as this circumstance changes, you will of course find out from us.
