Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield’s life may become the subject of an American sitcom.
Warner Brother and ABC are developing a show based on his first book “An Astronaut’s Guide to Life”, about an astronaut, his job, and his family life at home.
“They wanted to see if it can be made into something on television and then they worked with the major networks in the U.S.,” said Hadfield.
“In August, my wife and I went down and went around with the president of Warner Brothers to all of the major U.S. networks.”
Hadfield said ABC decided to take it on, adding he’s now working on the pilot with writers and that the comedy is expected to have the same title as the book.
“I think the way the cycle works is they film pilots in the winter (and) spring and then, assuming this all works and it’s going really well so far, it would be on television in the fall,” he said.
What that show needs is a genie in a bottle.
