And, according to the Hollywood Reporter, actor/director Steve Carell and Greg Daniels (creator of NBC's hit program "The Office") are developing a Netflix comedy inspired by Trump's idea for a space force as the sixth branch of the United States Armed Forces. "The goal of the new branch is "to defend satellites from attack" and 'perform other space-related tasks.' Or something".
I think that we all agree this show will be absolutely hilarious, especially when you consider it's bringing in the same people behind "The Office".
Carell (who will star in the series), Daniels and television producer Howard Klein will serve as executive producers for "Space Force".
Welcome to (Netflix's) Space Force. The Office is ranked as one of the streaming service's most-watched acquired series. "This is the story of the men and women who have to figure it out". A report from THR, citing "sources", suggests Carell's overall per-episode salary "sets a new overall record for talent" compared to other popular TV series. This year he starred in Beautiful Boy and Welcome to Marwen, and is playing Donald Rumsfeld in the Awards Season contender, Vice. Carell's role in The Office earned him nine Emmy nominations and one Golden Globe. In December, he signed an order for the Pentagon to create the Space Command, seen as the first step in establishing a space force that would fall under the purview of the U.S. Air Force.
