LOS ANGELES (AP) — Steve Carell is starring in a new workplace comedy that could be out of this world.

Netflix said Wednesday that Carell is re-teaming with “The Office” producers Greg Daniels and Howard Klein on the series “Space Force.”


It’s about the people assigned to create a sixth branch of the armed services focused on space, the streaming service said.


The premise is grounded in reality: Last year, the Trump administration directed the Pentagon to form a Space Command aimed at the creation of a Space Force branch.

Carell and Daniels are the sitcom’s co-creators and will serve as executive producers along with Klein.

Daniels co-created NBC’s 2015-13 “The Office”, based on the original Ricky Gervais-Stephen Merchant United Kingdom mockumentary series. KM
