According to Florida Today, the writers behind the hit show Mad Men want to start a new show about NASA in the 1960's and the media around that amazing time. For those not well versed in space history this was the time when NASA went from testing rockets to landing on the moon all in less than ten years. It caused international intrigue as two superpowers, the US and the USSR, raced against one another not to fight a new war or build a new weapon but to reach the outer reaches of our understanding to land on the moon.
Right now the area around Cape Canaveral, where NASA conducts most of their launches, is trying to find the space for the possible production and to court the hopeful TV show. The show may also focus on the area around the Cape called Cocoa Beach which is literally just south of NASA operations. It could be really interesting to see a drama based in an inspiring time with the flair and drama of Mad Men. I guess time will tell.
