GULFPORT, MS (WLOX) -

In less than 24 hours, big TV lights will be displaying the City of Gulfport. Crews arrived early Sunday morning to begin unloading trucks.

They will spend Monday and Tuesday in Gulfport filming for a new 1960s based short series. The ABC drama is called "The Astronaut Wives Club."

Filming will take place at several different Gulfport locations, including the Train Depot. For another scene, crews will be emptying out Back on the Rack and transforming it into a 1960s dress store.

City officials say if you plan to travel along Highway 90 take caution, because there will be a few quick delays where they have to reduce the highway to one lane. Officials say the lane closure won't last the whole day.
