The full trailer for Disney+’s The Right Stuff , which chronicles the early days of the United States’ space program, is here, and we also have a premiere date. This is exciting for many reasons, starting with the fact that Patrick J. Adams of Suits fame, and Colin O’Donoghue of Once Upon A Time fame, star in the show.
And also there’s the fact that we’re basically starving for any new content, so yeah, we will celebrate anything. No, seriously, anything. I’m gonna throw a party to the idea of having a new show to watch, I really am.
The first two episodes will be available on Disney+ on October 9th. The show stars Patrick J. Adams, Jake McDorman, Colin O’Donoghue, Aaron Staton, James Lafferty, Micah Stock, Michael Trotter, Nora Zehetner, Shannon Lucio and Eloise Mumford. “The Right Stuff” was produced for National Geographic by Leonardo DiCaprio‘s Appian Way and Warner Bros. Television.
“At the height of the Cold War in 1959, the Soviet Union dominates the space race, and America fears it is a nation in decline. Newly formed NASA has the monumental task of sending a man into space, and its engineers estimate they need decades to accomplish the feat. They are given two years. Dubbed Project Mercury, the program recruits and trains just seven astronauts from a handful of the military’s best pilots. Within days of being presented to the world, the Mercury Seven become instant celebrities, forged into heroes before they achieve a single heroic act.”
