Hollywood actress Krysten Ritter has had a bit of an up and down career over the years but, once she sees a door close in her face, it is not long before a new door opens in its place. Krysten saw her television series Don't Trust the B---- in Apartment 23 get cancelled after just two seasons but she has wasted no time in getting her career back on track.
It was recently revealed that Hollywood funnyman Will Ferrell had been given the go ahead to create the pilot episode for his potential new television series Mission Control, which has been taken on by NBC. Things are now beginning to move forward in a fairly big way, with the casting process now well underway and, you guessed it, Krysten Ritter has been cast in one of the lead roles for Mission Control.
For those of you who do not know a lot about Mission Control, it is set in the 1960s and has been described as a "workplace ensemble in the tone of Anchorman that examines what happens when a strong woman (Krysten Ritter) butts heads with a macho astronaut (still to be cast) in the race to land on the moon."
The cast for Mission Control is really starting to come together as it was also recently confirmed that Malcolm Barrett and Jonathan Slavin have been cast in the pilot as scientists. Will Ferrell will be an executive producer on Mission Control, along with long-time collaborator Adam McKay, while David Hornsby (It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia) will serve as the showrunner for the pilot. No word yet when Mission Control will air but we cannot wait.
