The new Space Force series starring Steve Carrell, John Malkovich, and Ben Schwartz is set to drop on May 29th on Netflix, and it actually looks pretty good.
The 10 episode first season follows Gen. Mark Naird (Steve Carrell) who is begrudgingly tapped with standing up the 6th branch of the US Armed Forces… the Space Force. Although often type cast as a doofus, Carrell can absolutely nail serious roles, and based on this trailer, there may be a lot of both.
Personally, I had written this production off until viewing the trailer. When I saw that Greg Daniels co created this with Carrell, I figured it would be another The Office or Parks And Recreation, which to me, are the exact same unfunny show using different actors.
Based on the trailer, Space Force offers a different format, and I’m excited to see what they have created.
