Andrea Roth signs onto the limited series...
Andrea Roth is heading into space. TV Line reports that the Rescue Me star, along with Pretty Little Liars' PJ Boudousque, are set to appear in SyFy's six-episode series Ascension. They join Brian Van Holt in the show.
Van Holt stars as the captain of the titular vessel, which was launched into space by the U.S. government in 1963 to populate a new world. The series picks up 50 years into the mission, as a mysterious murder causes those on board to question the true nature of their mission.
Roth will portray Juliet Bryce, the head doctor on the Ascension. Her relationship with her daughter Nora (Jacqueline Byers) has been difficult and strained for a while and the murder on board the ship has made it worse. Boudousque, meanwhile, co-stars as one of the starship's maintenance workers.
