First Look At Netflix's Space Force Starring Steve Carell And Lisa Kudrow

First Look At Netflix's Space Force Starring Steve Carell And Lisa Kudrow

Netflix has dropped the first-look images for the upcoming series Space Force starring Steve Carell.

The streaming service announced today that Emmy and SAG Award-winning actress Lisa Kudrow has joined the cast and will play Maggie Naird, the wife of General Mark R. Naird (Steve Carell).

Maggie is a Washington Air Force wife who has sublimated parts of herself to her husband's career for two decades. But as he takes on his biggest challenge, she is growing in a different direction.

Howard Klein will serve as executive producer, he's worked on The Office (which also starred Steve Carell) and Parks and Recreation.

The official synopsis for Space Force reads: "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 colourful 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."

​Michael Scott Named Steve Carell's Best Ever Character

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.

Carell will reportedly earn a record-setting salary in his first role in a scripted comedy since Michael Scott, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

It was revealed back in January that it's called Space Force and is inspired by Donald Trump's bizarre plan of the same name - a branch of the military that centred on fighting aliens, or some such weirdness.

New Trailer Lands For Steve Carell Netflix Comedy Space Force

published at6 months ago

When Trump announced the space force last year, many people were intrigued how that would work.

He said they would be in charge of defending American satellites from interference from other countries - which, to be fair, is a legitimate threat.

Trump said about the project: "The Air Force is going to focus on the Air Force. We need a separate branch, and we're working on that. It's called the Space Force, which is very exciting. People love it, people love it, they get it, and they love it."

Space Force will launch on Netflix on 29 May.
