Disney+ Launching Among the Stars


Among the Stars, a new six-part docuseries from Fulwell 73 Productions, is set to bow as a Disney+ original next month.

The series brings viewers along with NASA astronaut Captain Chris Cassidy as he embarks on one last mission. Among the Stars features intimate footage, personal video diaries and livestream footage to offer a behind-the-scenes look at the engineers, flight controllers and specialists who take on these dangerous and awe-inspiring missions.

All six episodes of Among the Stars will land exclusively on Disney+ on October 6.

Among the Stars spotlights the NASA mission to repair the $2-billion science experiment Alpha Magnetic Spectrometer, which aims to reveal the origins of the universe. The story ultimately becomes a broader tale about the team at NASA, their roles on this mission and the collective quest to succeed.

Ben Turner directs and executive produces for Fulwell 73. Executive producers on the series include Gabe Turner, Leo Pearlman, Will Gluck and Richard Schwartz.
