Update: Our reviewer found that Steve Carell and Greg Daniels & # 39; new Netflix series Space Force managed to do a lot of comedy from the strange and occasionally terrible place America is currently in. Read the full Space Force test for more information.
Space Force, the newest – and unfortunately largely mocked – branch of the U.S. military is getting its own Netflix series. The first season of the show will be available from May 29th.
Space Force with Steve Carell is a comedy series at work by Greg Daniels, co-creator of Parks and Recreation and creator of the US version of The Office. The series is inspired by the real military department, which was founded by US President Donald Trump and has the task of waging "space war".
Here's everything we know about it.
On May 5, Netflix released the first trailer for Space Force (see above), which gives viewers a sneak peek into the series and shows how Steve Carell's character is responsible for the newest branch of the U.S. military.
A day earlier, Netflix had spiced up the trailer's debut with an advertising image with Carell in the "moon camouflage" of the industry.
