    A new television drama series based on the book by Lily Koppel, The Astronaut Wives Club focuses on seven women who were key players behind some of the biggest events in American history.

    As America’s astronauts were launched on death-defying missions, the lives of their young wives were transformed, seemingly overnight, from military spouses to American royalty.

    As their celebrity rose, and tragedy began to touch their lives, they rallied together.

    I'm looking forward to this too. I just hope they don't trash it up too much, or try too hard to fit into the era it all took place, to the point that it takes away from the story.
    I am quite leery about that.

    The promos seem quite contrived. But the concept is different & could be fun.

    Why the heck does it have to be Thursday though? Why are the Networks jam packing that 1 evening with the interesting shows and leaving the others with lame & stale competition shows? Not fair.

    I plan to take a look at it, but their story was well done in The Right Stuff. I'm afraid theis movie will go for style over substance.

    I am interested as well but I'm hoping they don't make it too much like a night time soap opera. I realized it about the WIVES but I want some history in there too. I'll probably be in awe of their wardrobes, even though I'm wearing a baggy tshirt & comfy shorts while watching!

    Youch... just got panned by our local paper, who said compared to the book it was way too superficial. Looking forward to your reviews.

    I'm amazed they can make a film about people who are basically ordinary living people who never asked to be in the public eye, and I"m sure sex it up, add drama, etc. Surely many of these women are still alive?

    Yeah, superficial pretty much describes it. I'm still going to give it a fighting chance, but I was underwhelmed.

    I'm ok with it for a program that will air when there is likely nothing else of interest for me. I checked out some of their backgrounds during the show. It's unsettling knowing what's coming up.

    Hope ABC doesn't turn this into another Pan Am.
