ABC is making a "family friendly" comedy inspired by Col. Chris Hadfield's memoir An Astronaut's Guide To Life On Earth, which sounds adorable. However, the main character had better have one excellent mustache, or we walk.

Deadline is reporting that this multi-camera comedy comes from the Surviving Jack co-creators Justin Halpern and Patrick Schumacker. The two creators have a pilot production commitment, so that's kind of exciting — maybe we'll at least hopefully be able to see some of this comedy (hopefully).


Schumacker and Halpern are writing the script and will executive produce along with Hadfield as a consulting producer, which is great. Fingers crossed for this one. We're thinking Modern Family meets Hadfield's YouTube space talks, and that has charm written all over it.
