ABC is making space for a former House star.
Set during the height of the space race, Wives follows a tight-knit group of women whose husbands are all — you guessed it — astronauts.
Annable will play tomboy Trudy Cooper, a licensed pilot and the youngest in the show’s central group of wives. She joins previously announced star JoAnna Garcia Swisher.
Ordered for 10 episodes, Astronaut Wives Club will premiere this summer.
