Series To Premiere On Showtime

In Showtime’s first Moonbase 8 trailer, we get a glimpse of the NASA training that’s waiting for John C. Reilly and Fred Armisen.

The series follows three astronauts, Skip (Armisen), Rook (Tim Heidecker), and Cap (John C. Reilly), as they train for the opportunity to go to space during their time in Arizona at NASA’s Moon Base Simulator.

Here’s the trailer –

Showtime’s official synopsis for Moonbase 8 reads –

“Set in the isolated desert of Winslow, Arizona at NASA’s Moon Base Simulator, Moonbase 8 follows eager astronauts Skip (Armisen), Rook (Heidecker) and their leader Cap (Reilly) as they attempt to qualify for their first lunar mission. While working vigorously to complete their training, a series of unexpected circumstances forces the astronauts to question their own mental sanity, trust in each other and whether or not they’re cut out for space travel.”

Moonbase 8 was created by Reilly, Armisen, Heidecker, and Emmy nominee Jonathan Krisel, who worked with Armisen on the IFC series Portlandia and with Heidecker on Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!. Krisel is directing all six episodes of this series, which is being produced by studio A24.

Moonbase 8 premieres on Showtime sometime this Fall.
