Steve Carell reuniting with 'The Office' creator for Netflix comedy
Steve Carell made a name in the industry for his performance in The Office, the popular comedy series that aired in 2005. Now he is teaming up with the creator of the series, Greg Daniels, for another comedy show, which is going to be streamed on Netflix. Notably, the show is based on the Space Force proposed by President Trump. Here's all about it.
Show will be another workplace comedy
Much like The Office, the upcoming Space Force has also been described as a workplace comedy. It will focus on the individuals who are tasked with turning President Trump's dreams of a Space Force into reality. However, they have to face a rather staggering problem. The details of turning Trump's dream into reality is going to be unclear, which will lead to comic moments.
A story of an unclear objective
The upcoming show's details state that "The goal of the new branch is to 'defend satellites from attack' and 'perform other space-related tasks'...or something. This is the story of the men and women who have to figure it out".
So, what really is Trump's Space Force?
We have mentioned that the upcoming show will be based on Trump's proposed Space Force. However, what is the Space Force really? The proposal for the sixth military branch was put forward by Trump in June 2018. Trump identified space as a warfighting domain and wanted to create a separate branch that would deal solely with military operations in space.
Show was planned soon after Trump's comments, with Netflix's approval
The upcoming show soon went into motion after Trump's comments. Netflix recognized the potential and picked up the rights to the show. While the number of episodes and exact script are still to be determined, it will mark the return of Carell as a series regular for the first time since The Office. He will earn $1 million or Rs. 7 crore per episode.
