Gossip Girl producers Stephanie Savage and Josh Schwartz The Illusionist producer Michael London will be the minds behind ABC’s new summer drama The Astronaut Wives Club.
The 10-episode series will be based off of Lily Koppel’s novel that was published last summer. The best-seller is the story of the wives of NASA astronauts in the ‘60s and the troubles their families face. ABC picked up the storyline and was originally going to air the short series starting in February or March, but decided to order a pilot almost two weeks ago.
The Astronaut Wives Club will air next summer with the second season of ABC’s scandalous dramatic thriller Mistresses. A pilot date and cast have not been announced yet.
