A Mad Men-Style Show About NASA Would Be Totally Awesome

By Sam Gibbs on at

This needs to get made. Apparently the writers of Mad Men are pitching a new show based on NASA in its prime, looking at the halcyon days of the US space program through the eyes of the journalists that covered it. Yes, that would be awesome; make it happen.

The show would revolve around the press and its fight to cover the amazing stories that were unfolding, as men struggled and then triumphed, over a ten-year stretch leading to NASA putting men on the Moon.

I like Mad Men, but I don't love it. It's a bit slow in places for me, but something covering 60s NASA would be epic. Hell, I'd pay good money just to watch that. [Florida Today via Wired]
