‘The Martian’ author bringing space to the small screen

After successfully conquering the publishing world and getting Matt Damon out of a real pickle in the Hollywood version of “The Martian,” author Andy Weir[1] is taking us back to space again with a new hour-long television drama. Weir confirms that CBS has picked up his pilot for a show called “Mission Control” that will follow the next generation of astronauts and scientists as they juggle life and a critical mission. (Disclosure: CBS is CNET’s parent company). Weir, who originally self-published the novel version of “The Martian,” will serve as a writer and executive producer for the new show, according to Variety[2].

Aditya Sood, who produced the “Martian” movie, will also be involved.

We already had at least 40 geektastic shows[3] to look forward to in the coming months, but now it looks like we’ll have to find more time to squeeze this one in too.

Crowd Control: A crowdsourced science fiction novel written by CNET readers. Read it here[4].
