In my Fall TV Preview last month, I wrote the following about new NBC midseason comedy Mission Control:

“Will Ferrell and Adam McKay produce a David Hornsby (It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia) comedy about a female 1960s astronaut (Krysten Ritter) trying to break into the NASA boys club. Even in space, you can already hear this being canceled.”

No Mission Control footage is available; here’s Ritter talking about how awesome the show will be:
