Astronaut Wives Club Sneak Peek: Meet the 'Powerful' First Ladies of Space

Loading video...

Get ready for a whole new set of real housewives, complete with snazzy outfits, hunky husbands, and, of course, some inner quarrels.

On Thursday at 8/7c, ABC’s The Astronaut Wives Club blasts off with the story of the women behind America’s first men in space. The hubbies may have taken flight, but the ladies — portrayed by Yvonne Strahovski (Chuck), JoAnna Garcia Swisher (Once Upon a Time) and Odette Annable (Banshee), among others — were catapulted to instant stardom with magazine shoots and prying eyes.

“Behind the camera, there was a lot of turmoil and inner conflict,” co-star Erin Cummings (Spartacus: Blood and Sand) reveals in TVLine’s exclusive sneak peek.

Adds Garcia: “They didn’t get along always or all agree with each other. But they certainly had a bond,” thanks to their unique shared experience.

    I will def be tuning in. If this show is done well, it could easily be the new summer show to look forward to. There’s so much potential here. Loving the cast already

    Anyone know what accent Yvonne is using here? I noticed it in the clips, but can’t place it.

    Honestly, this looks dumb. Might get a cavity from sugary cheesiness.

    I’ll watch anything with Yvonne Strahovsky. Great actress!

    What a waste. I can count on one hand the type of people who are looking forward to this.

    I’m tuning it, but doesn’t it seem like the long-term potential is kind of limited? I mean, It seems tailored made to be a one-off limited series.

  7. It will be interesting to see how factually accurate this will be.
