10 months ago
NBC has ordered a comedy pilot led by executive producers Adam McKay and Will Ferrell. The Anchorman alums will bring their comedic style to Mission Control, a project from Universal that takes place during the space race of the early 1960s. In it, a headstrong female astronaut clashes with a brazen male counterpart as they, among others, seek to land on the moon first. The workplace comedy is described as having a similar tone to the Anchorman.
