The Office star Steve Carell is set to star in another workplace comedy, but this time around the focus is on… outer space. The forthcoming series Space Force is created by Carell and Greg Daniels. Daniels worked with Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant to bring The Office to the U.S.
The series revolves around a group of worker bees, living on Earth, who are assigned with the task of coming up with a sixth branch of the armed services. Space Force will be in addition to the army, navy, marines, air force and coast guard.
Carell takes on the role of General Naird, who is set to lead the new initiative. He is less than confident in the below clip:
Captain Naird doesn’t seem to believe in this newly formed group, but he’s not going it alone. He’s working with Dr. Adrian Mallory, played by John Malkovich. We can also look for Ben Schwartz (House of Lies) and Jane Lynch (Glee).
In addition to starring, Carell will be helping out with writing duties. You can look for Space Force over at Netflix on May 29.
