The Right Stuff Trailer Takes You to Kennedy Space Center

-

National Geographic has brought online the first The Right Stuff trailer, which shows you the actors getting to experience the real world of experimental flight tests at the Kennedy Space Center in Florida.

In the series, to combat a national sentiment of fear and decline, the U.S. government conceives of NASA’s Project Mercury, igniting a space race with the Soviets and making instant celebrities of a handful of the military’s adrenaline-fueled test pilots. These individuals, who come to be known as the Mercury Seven, are forged into heroes long before they have achieved a single heroic act. At the heart of a historic drama populated by deeply human characters, archrivals John Glenn (Patrick J. Adams) and Alan Shepard (Jake McDorman) jockey to become the first man in space.

Subsequent seasons of The Right Stuff will carry through to the epochal Apollo Space Program, where humankind saw one of its greatest achievements — man setting foot on the moon — and missions beyond.

The cast also includes Joe Dempsie, Colin O’Donoghue, Eric Ladin, Patrick Fischler, Nora Zehetner, Eloise Mumford, Shannon Lucio and Josh Cooke.

Leonardo DiCaprio and Jennifer Davisson are executive producers, along with Mark Lafferty (Castle RockHalt and Catch Fire), who has signed on as showrunner. David Nutter (Game of ThronesBand of Brothers) is set to direct and executive produce the series’ premiere episode. Will Staples (AnimalsShooter) is also an executive producer. Michael Hampton shepherded this project on behalf of Appian Way.
