They’ll be joined by executive producer Jeff Melvoin and Tanya Biank, who authored the book the series was based on: “Army Wives: The Unwritten Code of Military Marriage.”

Produced by ABC Studios and HODDER, the special also features commentary from real-life military wives, many of whom presumably related to the drama’s portrayal of the challenges and joys of women and their families living on a military base.
