It has everything:
Forced migration from Earth for some.
Union jobs on mars so union bosses and laborers move on their own.
Native Martians - called the "N" word by locals (It's okayP - I can't even type it with **'s without being jumped on.)
A Martian butler.
Time dilation and manipulation and possible time travel device in the form of a Martian totem.
It's got more than enough mysticism, intrigue, drama, politics, racism, sci-fi elements - and humor to be a good show.
And it could keep a good arc for a few years.
The Three Stigmata of Palmer Eldritch would be more "fun" but I fear the show runners would screw it up by leaning in on Eldritch as a boogeyman.
