Scenes from new ABC drama to be shot in downtown Gulfport

GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) - TV's bright lights are about to shine on Gulfport. The city council learned Tuesday that parts of a new ABC series will be shot downtown.

Sunday, we've been told cameras will be at three downtown locations, including the Depot area. Monday, the council heard Triplett Day Drug Store will be the backdrop for the ABC production called "The Astronaut Wives Club."

It's based on the best-selling novel by Lily Koppel, and focuses on the wives of the Mercury Seven astronauts during the height of the space race. From what we can tell, "The Astronaut Wives Club" will debut in 2015.
