Netflix is to create a new series documenting a space trip.
Countdown: Inspiration4 Mission To Space is Netflix’s first documentary "to cover an event in near real-time", the streaming giant said in a tweet.
It will show four "civilians" completing a three-day trip orbiting the Earth, it added.
"This September, four civilians will launch into space for a three-day trip orbiting Earth," Netflix tweeted.
The five-part programme will show the lead up to the launch and the mission itself.
