It is interesting in that it has been called a pre-apocalyptic series as opposed to the much more common post-apocalyptic series, meaning that it should offer viewers something new.

What Did the Trailer Tell Us About Hard Sun?

The basic premise of Hard Sun is that a pair of police officers named Elaine Renko and Charlie Hicks come upon evidence of an extinction level event that will be happening no more than 5 years into the future while looking into what seems like a routine death on initial inspection. As a result, the two are forced to cooperate for the sake of surviving until the end of the world in spite of the profound differences between the two. For example, Renko is incorruptible but more than a little bit unpleasant on a personal level because of her personal issues. In contrast, Hicks is committed to both his family and his police force, but at the same time, he is thoroughly corrupt. Suffice to say that the two main characters are opposites in more than one sense, which should provide their efforts in the face of the titular extinction level event that much more interesting to watch.
