About the Show

The Astronaut Wives Club is an American period drama television series developed by Stephanie Savage and based on Lily Koppel's book of the same name which tells the story of the wives of the Mercury Seven — America's first group of astronauts.

As America's astronauts were launched on death-defying missions, the lives of their young wives were transformed, seemingly overnight, from military spouses to American royalty.

As their celebrity rose, and tragedy began to touch their lives, they rallied together.

The Astronaut Wives Club stars JoAnna Garcia Swisher as Betty Grissom; Yvonne Strahovski as Rene Carpenter; Dominique McElligott as Louise Shepard; Odette Annable as Trudy Cooper; Erin Cummings as Marge Slayton; Azure Parsons as Annie Glenn; Zoe Boyle as Jo Schirra; Desmond Harrington as Alan Shepard; Bret Harrison as Gordo Cooper; Wilson Bethel as Scott Carpenter; Kenneth Mitchell as Deke Slayton; Joel Johnstone as Gus Grissom; Sam Reid as John Glenn and Aaron McCusker as Wally Schirra.

The Astronaut Wives Club was executive produced by Stephanie Savage (Gossip Girl, The O.C.); Josh Schwartz (The O.C; Chuck); Len Goldstein (The Carrie Diaries, Hart of Dixie); Michael London (Milk, Appaloosa) and Janice Williams (All Good Things, The Hollars).
