The Martian's Andy Weir is writing a NASA TV pilot for CBS

Oh I would watch the hell out of a show like this. If it gets ordered to series I'll be very excited. I loved The Martian , both the novel and the movie. Andy Weir is the perfect writer for a show like this.

Deadline reported that CBS has given a pilot order for Mission Control, a NASA-themed drama that “revolves around the next generation of NASA astronauts and scientists who juggle their personal and professional lives” during a critical mission.
