Houston, we have a problem! Dr. Mary Kendricks (Krysten Ritter, "Don't Trust the B--- in Apartment 23") is a tough but brilliant aerospace engineer, leading a team of NASA scientists at the cutting edge of space exploration. The only problem is, this is the 1960s and she's a woman. Navigating the ridiculous boys' club of astronauts and engineering nerds is no easy task, but she's up to the challenge ... until her boss brings on Tom (Tommy Dewey, "The Mindy Project") - a former hotshot test pilot and overall man's man - to co-manage her team. It doesn't help that he initially mistakes her for a secretary. Between him, her astronaut boyfriend Cash and her offbeat all-guy team, Mary certainly has her hands full... but at the end of the day, they all want the same thing: to get a man on the moon. It might just take a woman to get him there.
The cast also includes Malcolm Barrett, Jonathan Slavin and Julie Meyer.
Writer David Hornsby serves as executive producer with Adam McKay ("Anchorman," "Talladega Nights"), Will Ferrell ("Step Brothers") and Owen Burke. "Mission Control" is a production of Universal Television and Gary Sanchez Productions.
