Disney+ is getting a good dose of (historical) drama with Nat Geo‘s “The Right Stuff”.

The upcoming series, from Leonardo DiCaprio’s Appian Way production company, follows NASA’s Project Mercury during the height of the Cold War in 1959 and a group of the U.S. military’s most accomplished test pilots who become instant celebrities.

The pilots become what we know today as the Mercury Seven.
