From Emmy Award-winning executive producer and creator Seth MacFarlane (FAMILY GUY, “Ted”) and directed by Jon Favreau (“The Jungle Book,” “Iron Man”), THE ORVILLE is a one-hour science fiction series set 400 years in the future that follows the adventures of the U.S.S. Orville, a mid-level exploratory vessel. Its crew, both human and alien, faces the wonders and dangers of outer space, while also dealing with the familiar, often humorous problems of regular people in a workplace…even though some of those people are from other planets, and the workplace is a faster-than-light spaceship. In the 25th century, Earth is part of the Planetary Union, a far-reaching, advanced and mostly peaceful civilization with a fleet of 3,000 ships. Down on his luck after a bitter divorce, Planetary Union officer ED MERCER (MacFarlane) finally gets his chance to command one of these ships: the U.S.S. Orville. Determined to prove his worth and write a new chapter in his life, Ed finds that task all the more difficult when the First Officer assigned to his ship is his ex-wife, KELLY GRAYSON (Adrianne Palicki, “Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,” “Friday Night Lights”). As the new commander, Ed assembles a qualified, but eccentric crew, including his best friend, GORDON MALLOY (Scott Grimes, “ER,” “Justified”), who has problems with authority, but is the best helmsman in the fleet; DR. CLAIRE FINN (Penny Johnson Jerald, “24,” “The Larry Sanders Show”), one of the Union’s most accomplished physicians; BORTUS (Peter Macon, “Shameless,” “Bosch”), an alien from a single-sex species; ISAAC (Mark Jackson, “That Royal Today”), an artificial life-form from a machine society that thinks biological life-forms are inferior; navigator JOHN LAMARR (J. Lee, FAMILY GUY, “The Cleveland Show”), whose casual humor cuts through even the most dire situations; ALARA KITAN (Halston Sage, “Neighbors,” “Goosebumps”), a young, inexperienced security officer whose home planet’s high gravity gives her superior physical strength; and YAPHIT, a gelatinous creature voiced by comedian Norm Macdonald (“The Middle,” “Saturday Night Live”). Somehow, Ed and Kelly must put the past behind them and, with the help of the crew, navigate fascinating and sometimes dangerous adventures in outer space, as well as the tumultuous and captivating day-to-day personal relationships with their colleagues.

It was only six years ago when Halston Sage made her television debut. In that short time, she’s crafted a career that Hollywood dream-chasers could only aspire to. She’s landed major roles with accomplished actors and filmmakers like Seth Rogan in Neighbors, Adam Sandler in Grown Ups 2, Sofia Coppola’s The Bling Ring, and alongside Cara Delevingne in Paper Towns. Halston is famous for playing the blonde beauty, either the embodiment of virtue or audaciously cruel. The spectrum of characters in which she is casted shows her marvelous range. She brings dimension to archetypical characters with complexity and has a remarkable way of getting you to connect, whether you want to or not. From her formative days as a teen star, to more sophisticated performances in film, there is no denying that her artistry is striking.
Although relatively new to the scene, Hollywood was always within reach. Halston grew up in Los Angeles, a rare breed whose upbringing was set against a sunny backdrop of palm trees, salty air and brilliant skies. She didn’t jump into acting at an early age like many Angelenos do, but she was always a performer—finding creative outlets in her school newspaper and high school plays. Halston is an award-winning equestrian whose affection for animals is inspiring. With a personality that’s as sunny as the weather, there’s no denying her exceptional charm.
Coming from an assembly of Nickelodeon alum who’s been able to forge a career, Halston has done so seamlessly, without the overtly rebellious scandal. She has done things her way, in her own time and it shows. Halston Sage is a star without a script.
