Season 1 Premiered 05/14/2021 - 15 episodes released weekly.

It tells the story of four wretched shades battling their way out of the Underworld for one more chance at life, set in the world of the original game with a new story. In the Blood meditates on the questions of punishment, redemption, and making the world better within unjust systems. Fans of mythology, queer fantasy, and improv comedy will find a lot to love in the show. While the adventurers roll dice and the show makes many loving references to the source material which inspired it, audiences need neither be fans of HADES nor D&D to fall in love with our four player characters and cast of zany mythological NPCs.

'We Fix Space Junk' follows seasoned smuggler Kilner and reluctant fugitive Samantha as they travel the galaxy, dodging bullets and meeting strange and wonderful beings as they carry out odd jobs on the fringes of the law.

A female-led sci-fi comedy sitcom set in the far future, in a high-tech, dystopian world, We Fix Space Junk draws on the sci-fi of the past, following in the footsteps of Harry Harrison and of Douglas Adams' Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy.

Equal parts love-letter to sci-fi and satire of the present-day, Space Junk is lovingly produced by Beth Crane and Hedley Knights of Battle Bird Productions.
