The world loves AMC's "Mad Men" so much, its creators could probably make a new show about going to the laundromat and people would tune in. But they've chosen something much more colorful for their next pitch: NASA in the 1960s.

Cocoa Beach Mayor Dave Netterstrom was told about the show by Space Coast Film Commissioner Bonnie King, according to Florida Today. King also said that the production team is applying for financial incentives in Florida in the hopes of getting the new show off the ground. Florida is one of several states that offer significant benefits to filmmakers in to lure new productions to its neck of the woods.

This, of course, is not the first time the entertainment industry has considered a look back at the pioneering time period for space exploration. A show called "The Cape," which told the stories of space shuttle astronauts, debuted in 1996, but was canceled after only a single season.

Who knows if "Cocoa Beach" will make it to production? But if it does, one thing is for sure: It's highly likely that TV viewers will be glued to their sets to watch the first moon landing all over again.
