Amazon have released the official trailer for the upcoming sci-fi series The Peripheral.
The official synopsis for the series is as follows:
Flynne Fisher, her Marine veteran brother, Burton, and their dying mother live in a small town in the Blue Ridge Mountains in 2032. As their mother’s health deteriorates and the medical bills add up, Flynne and Burton make extra money playing simulations (Sims). The two siblings share Burton’s avatar, “jockeying” for high-paying customers to beat challenging game levels. When Burton is offered a chance to beta test a new Sim, it’s Flynne who ends up playing, pretending to be her brother. The Sim takes place in London and it tasks Flynne with breaking into a corporation known as the Research Institute—to steal a valuable secret. When the assignment goes badly wrong, Flynne begins to realize the Sim is more real than she ever could have imagined. The London she’s exploring exists in the future…year 2099. And what Flynne has uncovered in the Research Institute has put her and her family in grave peril.
There are people from the future who want to use Flynne for the information she’s stolen…and there are others who want Flynne dead. Flynne encounters Wilf in Future London, a man who may be the key to unlocking the mystery at hand. But first, in her present, Flynne and Burton, along with his former elite military unit, must rally to save themselves from forces intent on killing them—forces sent from the future to reclaim the vital secret Flynne stole.
The series based on the novel written by William Gibson, is created by Scott B. Smith, executive produced by Jonathan Nolan and Lisa Joy, and stars Chloe Grace Moretz, Jack Reynor, Gary Carr, Alexandra Billings, Chris Coy, JJ Feild, Eli Goree, Melinda Page Hamilton, Alex Hernandez, Louis Herthum, Adelind Horan, Katie Leung, T’Nia Miller, Julian Moore-Cook, Charlotte Riley and Austin Rising.
