A Stark heading to outer space.
Robb Stark, played by Richard Madden, made a kinda short but remembered appearance in Game of Thrones. The Stark’s oldest son said goodbye to the public in the red wedding fiasco and is now reprising his cable return in Amazon’s Oasis.
Madden plays the part of an interstellar priest in the show directed by Kevin MacDonald, who previously worked in The Last King of Scotland. Oasis is based on the 2014 novel The Book od Strange New Things by Michel Faber. The show will have 10 episodes following the crazy religious space adventure.

According to Amazon’s website, the show is an “ambitious drama pilot set in outer space.” Here’s the synopsis,”It centers on a soulful, intense priest (Madden) who leaves his wife book-of-strange-new-things to travel to a distant planet/colony to preach to the native population.”
Starring the show are Richard Madden, Anil Kapoor, and Haley Joel Osment. Amazon is clearly battling with streaming giant Netflix and this Robb Stark takes the space might help.
