This is an 8 episode miniesries by Alex Garland (Ex Machina, Annihiliation, Dredd) came out earlier this year.
I don't have much time for watching series nowadays, but this i finished within a few days. Highly recommended.

I loved it. While it was on, it was the one show I would look forward to watching. I wasn’t the biggest fan of the main female lead as her acting was a bit amateurish, but loved everything else about it. Love Nick Offerman and will watch anything he does.

Another good sci-fi one that was cancelled for stupidity was Counterpart on Starz. Basic plot was some scientists fucked up and split the planet into 2 identical dimensions and could access both of them at will, but humans being humans created some issues and a war between each dimension was brewing. Despite having extremely high ratings and strong female leads, Starz axed it because it had more male viewers than female viewers.

Agreed on the semi pro lead actress.

Man, that sounds 100% up my alley. Kinda "Fringe" like plot, still gonna check it out.

Definitely has a Fringe-kinda theme to it, minus the sweet, LSD-loving scientists.

There's 2 seasons and it at least had an ending that would work for a mini-series, but the door is certainly open to expand on it. Really hoping Netflix picks it up. All the main actors have to play double roles and for the most part, they all did it rather well.
