From the guys that brought you The Office. Welcome to Space Force.
The series was created by Greg Daniels and Steve Carrell and is set to premiere on Netflix. Space Force is centered around “the people tasked with creating a sixth branch of the armed services…Space Force.”
Sources note the idea for the series was sparked with Trump’s June order to establish Space Force as the sixth military branch.
Per The Hollywood Reporter:
Space Force is Carell’s latest TV foray and first long-term commitment since he wrapped his seven-season run on NBC’s The Office. Carell, currently starring in features Beautiful Boy, Vice and Welcome to Marwen, signed on as the male lead in Apple’s Jennifer Aniston-Reese Witherspoon morning show drama. Sources note that Carell signed a one-year deal for the Apple show, which was picked up with a straight-to-series, two-season 20-episode order. He is said to be credited as a “special guest star” for that series, which is expected to unspool as one of Apple’s first scripted originals in the summer.
