At a time when most productions are at a halt, Netflix has revealed the first looks for the new Steve Carell and Lisa Kudrow starrer workspace comedy called Space Force.
The web series is co-created by Carell and Greg Daniels – the man behind the hit US television series The Office.
Space Force marks Daniels and Carell’s second venture together as Carell played the iconic boss Michael Scott in The Office.
The series has reportedly been inspired by President Donald Trump’s space programme from 2018.
The official description of the web series reads as follows:
“A decorated pilot with dreams of running the Air Force, four-star general Mark R. Naird (Steve Carell) is thrown for a loop when he finds himself tapped to lead the newly formed sixth branch of the US Armed Forces: Space Force.”
“Skeptical but dedicated, Mark uproots his family and moves to a remote base in Colorado where he and a colorful team of scientists and “Spacemen” are tasked by the White House with getting American boots on the moon (again) in a hurry and achieving total space dominance.”
“From co-creators Carell and Greg Daniels (The Office), SPACE FORCE is a new kind of workplace comedy, where the stakes are sky high and the ambitions even higher.”
The official handle of the show took to Instagram to share some first looks:
Likewise, Netflix took to Twitter to give more details on the cast and the show:
The web series is all set to premiere on May 29, 2020 with its first season.
Space Force was one of the few ones that had not been affected by the COVID pandemic as it had finished shooting beforehand.
It also marks Carell’s second show in the digital world after the success of The Morning Show on Apple TV+.
