The series, developed by Nat Geo along with Appian Way Productions in association with Warner Horizon Scripted Television, will take a gritty, anti-nostalgic look at what would become America's first reality show, as obsessive astronauts and their families become instant celebrities in a competition that will either kill them or make them immortal, said Nat Geo.

Leo's TV adaptation hails from his production company Appian Way while National Geographic reportedly is already planning out several seasons for the project.

Beverly Hills - National Geographic will team with Leonardo DiCaprio to develop a scripted series based on Tom Wolfe's best-seller The Right Stuff, the network announced Tuesday during its session at the Television Critics Association summer press tour.

"With 'The Right Stuff, ' we're looking at moment in time where the everyday life, the trials and tribulations, of these men was scrutinized in the public".

Davisson, who has previously worked with DiCaprio on a number of projects, including 2015 hit The Revenant (DiCaprio won the Best Actor Oscar for his performance), noted in a separate statement: "We couldn't think of a better partner [National Geographic] to bring The Right Stuff to the world". The movie debuted to rave reviews and starred Ed Harris, Dennis Quaid, Barbara Hershey and more.

According to Deadline.com, the series will use the book as a starting point, but will tackle one mission each season, with season one kicking off at the height of the Cold War in 1958.
