NBC is coming out with an epic sci-fi series titled ‘Debris’ which will premiere exclusively on the network in March. The show was originally announced in June 2020 and the pilot episode for the show was shot well before the entertainment industry went under lockdown due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
The pilot episode received a positive response from executives at NBC and, as a result, it was later picked up for an entire series. The series revolves around two law enforcement agents from different continents who need to work together to protect the unknown alien technology from the bad guys.
