There's a saying that one should always stick to writing what they know - and, really, if there's one thing that the writers of Mad Men know, it's the 1960s. Luckily, it doesn't look like they're going to be letting their knack for absolutely nailing the decade go to waste: According to Uproxx, some writers from the series are working on another show set in the '60s, this time centering around NASA.

The '60s were, of course, the height of the 'space race' between the U.S. and the then-Soviet Union, so the time period is actually perfect for a show - tons of opportunities for drama that give way to scenes which include some character staring out a high-rise window all pensively, Jack Donaghy-style.

Not much info about the project has been released yet, but we do know: The show will be titled Cocoa Beach, it'll focus on the space program in the '60s and the journalists who covered it, and it may debut as early as this fall if all goes according to plan. Yay for more shows that feature people excessively drinking and smoking without knowing the consequences!
