Deadline Hollywood reports that Fox has signed writer Eli Attie (The West Wing) to pen a script for a new drama series that would follow a private space race:
Written by Attie, the present-day drama is about a space race — but between people instead of nations, as two wildly ambitious egos with a long and ugly personal history battle to control the future of space exploration.
Attie, who was Vice President Al Gore's chief speechwriter in the White House, previously served as co-executive producer of the Fox medical drama "House."

Hmm. Sounds an awful lot like the real-life story of the competing aerospace companies headed up by Elon Musk and Jeff Bezos.
Should make for an interesting series — sort of like The Right Stuff of the Boardroom.
