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.
