Enter Space Force. From the same creative team behind The Office, the series follows the creation of the proposed sixth branch of the United States military. Carell plays a decorated Air Force general tasked with creating the Space Force from the ground up. Skeptical, but dedicated, he uproots his entire family (daughter played by Diana Silvers of Booksmart) to move to a remote base in Colorado. No one believes in him, but that’s okay — he believes in himself!
Well, after calming himself down in his office and gently singing “Kokomo” by the Beach Boys to himself.
Space Force also stars John Malkovich, Tawny Newsome, Ben Schwartz, Jimmy O. Yang, Noah Emmerich, Alex Sparrow, Lisa Kudrow, and Don Lake. The sitcom premieres on Netflix on May 29.
