Carell teams up with ‘The Office’ creator Greg Daniels for a new workplace comedy.
In a spectacular collision of pop culture references, a Steve Carell-led series about Space Force is coming to Netflix, potentially presenting an answer to, “What if The Office but space?”
The series, titled Space Force, was co-created by Carell and The Office‘s Greg Daniels and will be a workplace comedy, giving even more weight to the above question. It was also inspired by Trump’s very real announcement last summer of a new branch of military, Space Force, which was properly memed and (hopefully) forgotten. A teaser clip offered a premise: “This is the story of the men and women who have to figure it out.” The show will likely be different than the 1978 sitcom of the same name, which starred Fred Willard and some badly designed sets, but fingers crossed for a Fred Willard cameo.
There’s no release date or cast announced just yet, but it is an interesting turn of events: Netflix stands to lose The Office, which has proven to be one of its most popular shows, next year. Is it trying to fill the hole with The Office 2.0? Considering the die-hard fandom around the show, probably not, but Carell is reportedly netting around $1 million an episode, according to The Hollywood Reporter, and it appears the show was made specifically for Netflix.
