Disney+ will premiere its newest original docuseries Among the Stars, produced by Fulwell 73, this October.
The series follows NASA astronaut Captain Chris Cassidy as he embarks on one last mission. All six episodes will be available for viewing on the premiere date, October 6.
Through “intimate” footage, personal video diaries and livestream footage — stationed both on Earth and in space — the series offers a behind the scenes look at the team of engineers, flight controllers and specialists involved in the mission to repair a US$2 billion science experiment, the Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer (AMS), which aims to reveal the origins of the universe.
Among the Stars is filmed with different space agencies across the globe — from NASA’s Johnson Space Center in Houston to the European Space Agency in Cologne to the Japanese Aerospace Exploration Agency outside of Tokyo and the Russian Space Agency in Star City.
