NBC Cancelled Female Driven 1960s Space Race Comedy “Mission Control” Before Premiere
(via The Hollywood Reporter)
Though there seems to be a little bit of a trend of space themed comedies these days with Paul Feig‘s Other Space for Yahoo, Cracked‘s Starship Icarus, NBC has jumped off any sort of potential bandwagon that there would be by canceling Mission Control from Gary Sanchez Productions ahead of its premiere.
Krysten Ritter was set to star, but locking down the rest of the cast apparently proved too difficult for NBC to want to move forward with the show.
It’s unfortunate as a workplace comedy set at NASA’s Mission Control in the 60s with Ritter as the star definitely sounded pretty great to us. Maybe it’ll get revived somewhere else as that is definitely a trend in TV these days.
