"My Astronaut" is a mockumentary web series about a private, billionaire-backed Mars colonization mission and the young, potential astronauts competing to be selected as crew members. We follow the story of surprise frontrunner Maggie, an earnest former school teacher and Staten Island resident and her slow-witted boyfriend Micah. More than anything, Maggie cares about space and Micah cares about Maggie.
But throughout the selection process, both Maggie and Micah need to learn how to live apart. Their forays into the outside world often result in unintended consequences.
