The Red Helmet is a half hour, mock-reality show set in the not-too-distant future. It follows ten members of the public (all played by comedic actors) competing with each other at the RED-X space agency (a company not dissimilar to Elon Musk’s SpaceX), in order to win the coveted Red Helmet space helmet and therefore become the ‘chosen one’ that will join a team of RED-X astronauts in the very first human expedition to Mars.
