Watch: Steve Carell In ‘Space Force’ Trailer!

May 7, 2020

Netflix does it again! This time, Steve Carell plays a four-star general tasked with militarizing space in a new series called Space Force.

As you might expect, the show pokes fun at US President Trump’s urge to add a Space Force to the US military. Carell’s character, General Mark R. Naird, oversees the creation of this new branch.

Carell co-created Space Force with Greg Daniels (US version of The Office). These two work well together. That trailer looks good.

Daniels said, “We wanted to make sure that we were being accurate and more than respectful — I would say complimentary — of the military virtues that Steve’s character holds. We have astronaut advisors, science advisors and our military advisor, Mark Vazquez, has been very useful in teaching us about military behavior. Both Steve and I have relatives in the military who we love and respect, and hope are going to enjoy watching the show.”

Some big names in this new series – joining Carell, Space Force stars John Malkovich, Ben Schwartz, Diana Silvers, Tawny Newsome, Lisa Kudrow, Jimmy O. Yang and Noah Emmerich.

You don’t have long to wait – the show premieres on Netflix on May 29th.
