Show summary: Based on Lily Koppel’s book “The Astronaut Wives Club: A True Story,” this limited series tells the story of the women who were essential players behind big events in American history. As astronauts embark on death-defying missions, Life magazine documents behind-the-scenes moments from the lives of their young wives and families. The attention transforms these military spouses into American royalty. While their celebrity status rises, tragedy also starts to touch their lives, bringing the women together to support one another.

Why we love the show: What’s not to love about astronauts, period costumes, and drama? The show is a delectable mix of the fervor surrounding space travel with the very earth-grounded ups and downs of family and friendships.

It’s a mix of: Mad Men + (a classier version) of the Real Housewives franchise
