The final (production) frontier? World’s first studio in space announced

Space Entertainment Enterprise (S.E.E.), a UK-based media company, is developing SEE-1

A new film and TV studio is to open in space by the end of 2024.

Space Entertainment Enterprise (S.E.E.), a UK-based media company, is developing SEE-1, described as the world’s first content and entertainment studios and multi-purpose arena in space. 

It will be built by Axiom Space, which operates human spaceflight services and human-rated space infrastructure.

S.E.E. will dock with Axiom’s commercial space station, Axiom Station, while it is connected to the International Space Station.

According to the company, the module will allow artists, producers, and creatives to develop, produce, record, and live stream content which maximises the Space Station’s low-orbit micro-gravity environment, including films, television, music and sports events.

S.E.E has been co-founded by Elena and Dmitry Lesnevsky, who are producing the first ever Hollywood motion picture filmed in outer space, which is expected to star Tom Cruie.

The executive team also includes former Endemol Shine UK CEO Richard Johnston as COO, Mark Taffet, the former SVP of sports and PPV at HBO, and ex-Viacom Technology VP, Remi Abayomi.

The company said it is currently in discussions with investors and commercial partners on the project with a further fundraising round planned shortly.

“SEE-1 is an incredible opportunity for humanity to move into a different realm and start an exciting new chapter in space,” said Dmitry and Elena Lesnevsky, co-Founders, S.E.E.

“It will provide a unique, and accessible home for boundless entertainment possibilities in a venue packed with innovative infrastructure which will unleash a new world of creativity. With worldwide leader Axiom Space building this cutting-edge, revolutionary facility, SEE-1 will provide not only the first, but also the supreme quality space structure enabling the expansion of the two trillion-dollar global entertainment industry into low-Earth orbit.”

SEE-1 is planned to be operational from December 2024, early in Axiom Station’s on-orbit assembly. When the station’s initial configuration is completed and it is ready to separate from the ISS in 2028, the content creation venue will comprise one-fifth of its volume, said S.S.E.
