The official Netflix synopsis reads –

“A decorated pilot with dreams of running the Air Force, four-star general Mark R. Naird (Carell) is thrown for a loop when he finds himself tapped to lead the newly formed sixth branch of the US Armed Forces: Space Force. Skeptical but dedicated, Mark uproots his family and moves to a remote base in Colorado where he and a colorful team of scientists and “Spacemen” are tasked by the White House with getting American boots on the moon (again) in a hurry and achieving total space dominance.”

In addition to Carell, Malkovich and Schwartz, the show stars Diana Silvers, Tawny Newsome, Lisa Kudrow, Jimmy O. Yang, Jane Lynch, Noah Emmerich and the late Fred Willard.

Space Force was created by Carell and Greg Daniels, a writer, producer and director who has worked on The Simpsons, The Office, Parks And Recreation, King Of The Hill and Saturday Night Live.

Space Force launches on Netflix on May 29th, 2020.
