Big Bang's Bill Prady is teaming with NASA veteran Mike Massimino for a comedy inspired by his life as an astronaut. According to The Hollywood Reporter, "the untitled comedy explores what happens when the dream of following in the footsteps of Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin and becoming an American hero collides with the reality of a cynical world and the life of a divorced dad." NBC has given the potential show a script commitment. Massimino consulted on The Big Bang Theory, guest-starring on six episodes when Howard Wolowitz went to space. Brady will pen the script with Simpsons producer Dan Greaney.
