Steve Carell leads the Space Force in new trailer
Netflix has released a brand new Space Force trailer for Steve Carell’s highly-anticipated new sitcom, giving us a preview of the unlikely difficulties that Carell’s General Naird must face in order to prove to everyone that he can lead the government’s newest agency to success. The series will be available for streaming on Friday, May 29. Check out the video in the player below!
The streaming service gave Space Force a straight-to-series order, which is described as a workplace comedy focusing on a group of people who must develop a sixth branch of the military, inspired by President Trump’s desire to develop a “Space Force” military branch.
The series will be led by Golden Globe winner Steve Carell (The Office) as General Mark R. Naird and John Malkovich (Bird Box) as Dr. Adrian Mallory. It will also star Lisa Kudrow (Friends), Diana Silvers (Booksmart, Ma) as Erin Naird, Ben Schwartz (Parks and Recreation) as F. Tony Scarapiducci, Jimmy O. Yang (Crazy Rich Asians) as Dr. Chan Kaifang, Tawny Newsome as Angela Ali and Alex Sparrow as Bobby Telatovich.
Space Force will mark a reunion between Carell and The Office creator Greg Daniels. Carell and Daniels co-created the series together and will executive produce alongside 3 Arts’ Howard Klein, whom the two previously worked with on the acclaimed NBC comedy that ran for eight years. The series will also serve as Carell’s first major comeback to comedy after 7 years since departing The Office in 2013.
Netflix has been streaming The Office for years and ratings are reportedly higher than many of its original series on the service and picked the show up upon hearing of the project before it could be shopped to any other networks.
