Nat Geo Releases First Look at 'The Right Stuff' Series; To Debut on Disney+ This Fall

The first look at Nat Geo’s upcoming space series, The Right Stuff, has been released.

The upcoming show is produced by Leonardo DiCaprio’s Appian Way and stars Patrick J. Adams, Jake McDorman, Colin O’Donoghue, Aaron Staton, James Lafferty, Micah Stock, and Michael Trotter.

Here’s the official summary: At the height of the Cold War in 1959, the Soviet Union dominates the space race. To combat a national sentiment of fear and decline, the U.S. government conceives of NASA’s Project Mercury, igniting a space race with the Soviets and making instant celebrities of a handful of the military’s most accomplished test pilots.

These individuals, who come to be known as the Mercury Seven, are forged into heroes long before they have achieved a single heroic act. The nation’s best engineers estimate they need several decades to make it into outer space. They are given two years.

The Right Stuff, based on Tom Wolfe book of the same name, is set to premiere on Disney+ this fall.

See the first look and images from the series below!
