A workplace comedy starring Steve Carell and Lisa Kudrow called Space Force is coming to Netflix. Created by The Office duo Steve Carell and Greg Daniels, the trailer of the show was unveiled on Tuesday.
Greg Daniels further adds, "After that call, we had a bunch of creative sessions where we brainstormed at Steve’s house, outlining who his character would be and what pressures would be on him, and what we wanted to say about the notion of making space more military. We realized that the story had beautiful visuals and a mythic quality, and it echoed some of America's best moments. It had a lot of heroism and yet it also had a strong satirical element. Suddenly everybody has realized that there are riches to be had on the moon, and we’ve got to stake our claim. It feels like there’s now a scramble to colonize space. The contrast between that and the super hopeful early days of NASA, when it was just such an achievement for all of mankind to get a person on the moon, is a good subject for satire."
"Once we had just the concept of Space Force itself, Greg and I sat down and we asked, "Well, what's the show going to be? What will it be about?" And we landed on the idea that it should be about the inception of Space Force. It should be about the person who is entrusted with the development, the creation of a new branch of the Armed Forces. And my character, General Mark R. Naird, is the person who's drafted into creating this branch,' said Carell.
"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 behaviour. Both Steve and I have relatives in the military who we love and respect, and hope are going to enjoy watching the show," Daniels signed off.
