Desmond Harrington is joining ABC’s new Space Age.
The Dexter alum has landed a series-regular role in ABC’s 10-episode summer series The Astronaut Wives Club, TVLine has learned.
Set during the height of the space race, Wives follows a tight-knit group of women whose husbands are all — you guessed it — astronauts.
Harrington will play real-life astronaut Alan Shepherd (aka the first American in space). He is competitive, steely, and has a wry sense of humor.
The actor joins an ensemble led by JoAnna Garcia, Azure Parsons, Zoe Boyle and Odette Annable.
