New Dramatic Podcast Series Created by Rhys Wakefield and William Day Frank to Premiere on December 21, Available on Apple Podcasts and All Major Podcast Platforms


QCODE, a premium content studio and podcast network, announced today their next premium dramatic series, FROM NOW, featuring and executive produced by Bodyguard star Richard Madden and Succession star Brian Cox. FROM NOW, directed by Rhys Wakefield and produced by QCODE, was created by Wakefield and William Day Frank. Wakefield directed the 2019 film BERSERK and starred in season 3 of HBO’s True Detective while Frank produced BERSERK among other films.

In FROM NOW, a famed lost spaceship, the USS HOPE, returns to Earth after vanishing thirty-five years prior. The lone survivor (Richard Madden) disembarks mysteriously looking the exact same age as when he left. Following the ensuing media chaos, he finally reunites with his formerly identical twin brother (Brian Cox) for a one-on-one meeting. But what starts as a joyful reconciliation soon leads to dark revelations that threaten their relationship -- and the future of humanity.

FROM NOW tackles a number of big themes and topics; sibling rivalries and family loyalty; technological advances and the future of space exploration; climate change and human adaptation, and how we as individuals process “time” itself. Madden and Cox are joined by an incredible supporting cast which includes David Dastmalchian, Betty Gabriel, Jessica McNamee, Erin Moriarty, Lance Reddick, Elisabeth Shue, Karla Souza, and Rhys Wakefield himself.

The 6 episode season launches on Monday December 21st with new episodes available each Monday through January 25th. It will be available on Apple Podcasts and all major podcast platforms.
