The streamer has released a big official trailer for the series, which finds Carell playing the guy in charge of putting the U.S. back on the moon. The office here is Space Force, the newly formed branch of the U.S. Armed Forces.
This new trailer, along with the teaser trailer before it, makes the half-hour show look promising indeed. It’s a big-looking production, with a great cast and a ripe-for-satire plot to boot. Bring it on.
Space Force, also starring John Malkovich, Ben Schwartz, Lisa Kudrow, Jimmy O. Yang and Noah Emmerich, among others, rockets onto Netflix on May 29.
Official synopsis for Space Force:
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 colorful 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. 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. John Malkovich, Diana Silvers, Tawny Newsome, Ben Schwartz also star, alongside co-stars Lisa Kudrow, Jimmy O. Yang, Noah Emmerich, Alex Sparrow and Don Lake. Howard Klein/3Arts (The Office) serves as executive producer, with Daniels as showrunner.
