Set in the 1960s, the pilot for Mission Control stars Krysten Ritter as a brilliant and tough aerospace engineer who leads a team of NASA scientists at the cutting edge of space exploration. Michael Rosenbaum was in the pilot but his role was set to be recast.
The comedy didn’t test well but people at the network liked it and they found a way to order six episodes. Now, NBC apparently has many new comedies in the works so they decided they don’t want to move forward with Mission Control.
In 2012, NBC cancelled Next Caller before airing but had actually shot a few of those episodes.
What do you think? Does Mission Control sound like a show you would have watched?
