In 2013, a European company put out a call for potential Mars colonisers, selected 100 candidates and began testing and preparing them for the mission, which is scheduled for 2024.
The show focuses on the final stages of this selection process, starting from the point where the last 12 candidates compete for one of the four available places on this one-way trip.
It all takes the form of a reality show in which aspiring astronauts become atypical stars and every detail of their lives comes under the microscope of public interest.
