Space Force? Coming to a TV near you

Greg Daniels will team back up with Steve Carrell for a new show

Greg Daniels will team back up with Steve Carrell for a new show

That seems to be the basic premise for Netflix's new workplace comedy inspired by Donald Trump's very stupid Space Force, starring the one and only Steve Carrell. The comedy, titled Space Force, will focus on the team tasked with creating a sixth branch of the armed services. We can now look forward to a fresh barrage of wisecracks since Netflix announced a new Space Force comedy on Wednesday.

Netflix announced the new project via a text-heavy video set to the iconic theme music of 2001: A Space Odyssey.

For instance, there's the fact that 36,000 people are already employed by the Air Force Space Command.

Carell, Daniels and Klein will executive produce and Daniels will serve as showrunner.

The White House delivered initial recommendations on its establishment to Congress in August and at the time, Vice President Mike Pence announced changes that reorganize how the Department of Defense handles space operations.

The series will follow the men and women tasked with creating the space force and figuring out what exactly it does.

Steve Carell is making his triumphant return to television (sort of).

For years now, there has been talk of a reboot or revival of the workplace comedy The Office, the series that ran for nine seasons and kind of spawn the mockumentary-style comedy series that quickly caught on. This will be his first series regular role since his Office exit. Production won't interfere with Carell's role in Apple's untitled morning show drama alongside Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon, according to Deadline. But it will nearly certainly come into existence before the real Space Force.
