Space Force Series

January 18, 2019

The Office creator Greg Daniels and star Steve Carell will reunite for a new Netflix sitcom, Space Force, that parodies President Trump’s proposed military branch of the same name. The duo co-created the series and will executive produce; Carell will star in the show, and Daniels will serve as showrunner.

The streaming service previewed the project with a sci-fi-aping teaser that outlines the plot. “On June 18th, 2018, the federal government announced the creation of a sixth major division of the United States Armed Forces,” reads overlaid text. “The goal of the new branch is ‘to defend satellites from attack’ and ’perform other space-related tasks. Or something. This is the story of the men and women who have to figure it out.”

Netflix has yet to announce the show’s episode count or premiere date. Space Force marks the pair’s first project together since the U.S. version of The Office.
