The Astronaut Wives Club: ABC Orders New Summer Series

astronaut wives club tv show on abcMistresses is getting some company on ABC. The alphabet network has ordered another original dramatic series for next summer — The Astronaut Wives Club. There will be 10 episodes.

The Astronaut Wives Club is based on the best-selling novel of the same name by Lily Koppel. It takes place in the 1960s and focuses on the young wives of America’s Mercury Seven astronauts.

The show will likely be billed as a special event series but could potentially continue beyond that.

What do you think? Do you think this sounds like a series you would watch?

    A location scout came and took pictures of my house. Praying that they will use it. I have been looking forward to the show even before the scout approached me. Can hardly wait.

    I am looking forward to the series as my 8 yr old grandson has landed a small part in a swimming pool scene. Look out Hollywood Justice Smith is about to make his debut splash! Pardon the pun. I live in Vermont and he is in Mississippi, I miss him very much and I am excited that I may get to see him on TV!

    I read “Astronaut Wives,” so I look forward to this series. It was very much like “Under the Sabres,” the book that was the basis for Lifetime’s “Army Wives.” I really miss that show (and loved the book), so I have high hopes that “Astronaut Wives” will fill that void. I can’t wait!!!
