Based on the iconic bestseller by Tom Wolfe, THE RIGHT STUFF is an inspirational look at the early days of the U.S. Space Program and the incredible story of America's first astronauts, the Mercury Seven.

At the height of the Cold War in 1959, the Soviet Union dominates the space race and America fears it is a nation in decline. Newly-formed NASA has the monumental task of sending a man into space and its engineers estimate they need decades to accomplish the feat. They are given two years.

Project Mercury would recruit and train astronauts from a handful of the military's best pilots. Within days of being presented to the world, the Mercury Seven become instant celebrities, forged into heroes before they achieve a single heroic act.

Two men at the center of the story jockey to become the first man in space: Major John Glenn, a Marine and committed family man, and Lieutenant Commander Alan Shepard, one of the best pilots in Navy history.

The rest of the Mercury Seven includes Lieutenant Gordo Cooper, the youngest of the seven selected to everyone's surprise; Wally Schirra, a competitive pilot with a gift for pulling pranks; Scott Carpenter, dubbed "The Poet" by the other astronauts; Deke Slayton, a taciturn but incredibly intelligent pilot and engineer; and Gus Grissom, a decorated military veteran who eventually becomes the second man in space.

The series also examines the astronauts' families, including Annie Glenn, who contends with a speech impairment in the public eye; Louise Shepard, who anchors her family while refusing to let Alan's transgressions affect her home; and Trudy Cooper, an accomplished pilot who puts her own ambitions aside to present the image of a happy family.

NASA's engineers work against the clock under mounting pressure from Washington, including Bob Gilruth, a soft-spoken rocket scientist and his partner, the brash and passionate Chris Kraft.

NASA's PR department goes into overdrive as the omnipresent John "Shorty" Powers leads the astronauts on glad-handing trips to factories and fundraising dinners to build support for the space program, while LIFE Magazine's Loudon Wainwright Jr. is assigned to write profiles of the astronauts and their families to paint the perfect picture for a transfixed public.

At a time when many wondered if America's glory days were behind it, THE RIGHT STUFF is an aspirational story about how ordinary human beings can achieve the extraordinary. As much about who we are today as it is about historic achievements, THE RIGHT STUFF evokes the wonder of this singular era, when the free world looked towards a new horizon of hope as we first stepped off the bounds of our only home to venture into the vast unknown.
