The series comes from entertainment company Fresh Produce Media and producers Free Turn Entertainment, with Free Turn CEO Jon Hamm saying: "Our vision for The Salvation was to craft an utterly immersive auditory journey for our audience.

"It mirrors our ambition of producing a blockbuster Hollywood feature film within the realm of audio. With a stellar cast, top-tier audio design and an original score, we’ve assembled all the essential elements to transport our listeners into the thrilling worlds of time travel and espionage.

"From the humble huts of Bletchley in 1945 to the bustling streets of 1970s Berlin, the harrowing battlefields of France in 1918 to the terrifying scenes of today’s modern warfare, we invite our audience to step into these vividly realised worlds."

Similarly, the chief content officer for Fresh Produce Media, Colin Moore, added: "The Salvation is a great example of our approach to storytelling in audio, highlighting the immense talents of our voice actors to really grip the audience and transport them into the action – in this case, a sci-fi adventure story that will resonate in the US, UK and beyond."
