Space Force: Steve Carell returning to television with The Office creator

The Hollywood Reporter has brought word that Emmy-nominated actor Steve Carell will be returning to television for an upcoming Netflix comedy series. Based on President Donald Trump’s idea for creating a Space Force, the series will also mark a reunion between Carell and The Office creator Greg Daniels.

The streaming service gave the project a straight-to-series order, which is described as a workplace comedy focusing on a group of people who must develop a sixth branch of the military, inspired by Trump’s desire to develop a “Space Force” military branch. Carell and Daniels co-created the series together and will executive produce alongside 3 Arts’ Howard Klein, whom the two previously worked with on the acclaimed NBC comedy that ran for eight years.

Carell has made a push towards his film career since having left the American adaptation of the BBC workplace comedy, starring in a number of major roles including his Oscar-nominated performance for the 2014 sports drama biopic Foxcatcher and Golden Globe-nominated roles in the biographical dramedies The Big Short and Battle of the Sexes. Over the past year, however, he has found an interest in returning to the small screen, signing on for a guest role on an upcoming Apple comedy starring Jennifer Aniston (Office Christmas Party) and Reese Witherspoon (Big Little Lies), and while no numbers have been released yet, Carell’s deal with Netflix is reportedly setting a new record for highest-paid talent.

Netflix has been streaming The Office for years and ratings are reportedly higher than many of its original series on the service and picked the show up upon hearing of the project before it could be shopped to any other networks.

No episode count has currently been set for Space Force, but scripts for the comedy series are set to begin development soon.
