Steve Carell Is Bringing Trump’s Space Force to Netflix

Donald Trump's Space Force idea sounded like (and still sounds like) a joke, so making a Space Force comedy series only seems fair. The streaming service describes Space Force as "a new workplace comedy series" that will follow the people tasked with creating the military organization.

Howard Klein, another "Office" alum, will also executive produce.

When President Donald Trump announced the creation of the Space Force as a new sixth branch of the U.S. military last fall, the idea attracted plenty of attention, and jokes.

Westbrook City's marketing and communications director Tina Radel captured the drone footage of the disk and posted it online. Local man Doug Bertlesman said , 'It kind of looks like a crop circle. "It's where the aliens landed", commented another.

Sources say Carell's salary for Space Force - including co-creator and exec producer fees - sets a new overall record for talent, likely topping the $1 million per episode paydays that the cast of CBS' The Big Bang Theory previously netted.

An episode count and premiere date will be revealed later. Originally, "The Office" was a British program aired by the BBC in the United Kingdom, but Carell played the character Michael Scott on a US version that Daniels developed. His other notable film roles include the "Despicable Me" franchise, "The Big Short", and "Foxcatcher", the last of which earned him an Academy Award nomination.

Steve Carell is returning to TV for his first starring role since leaving The Office in 2011.

Whether he is being mercilessly lampooned by Alec Baldwin on "Saturday Night Live" or praised by rapper Kanye West, President Donald Trump has been inescapable in American pop culture in recent years.

Back in June, Trump officially directed the Pentagon to create the so-called space force. My guess is we'll see the show long before we see the actual Space Force.
