On May 29, 2020 Netflix will release its newest comedy entitled Space Force. The series is a workplace comedy. Loosely based on the US Armed Forces branch of the same name established in December of 2019. The Series promises to be highly entertaining with a strong lineup of TV comedians including Steve Carell and Lisa kudrow. Space Force promises to be the equal of The Office. Though Steve Carell Will probably do his best to portray is character as uniquely as possible.
Greg Daniels And Steve Carell Team Up
Netflix’s Space Force is the product of a collaboration between Netflix and the series creators Comedy writer Greg Daniels and actor Steve Carell. The two have worked together before on the critically acclaimed TV series The Office. The series ran for nine seasons with the ones that included Greg Daniel’s comedic writing and Steve Carell’s hilarious acting receiving the highest reviews of the series.
This series is what Greg and Steve are best known for. And perhaps the one series they are most happy with, as it stands. When Steve was asked if he would participate in a potential continuation of the series. He stated that “I think it’s maybe best to leave well enough alone and just let it exist as what it was “. By this meant that people would expect a continuation series to be just like the original. And there’s no way it could or should be.
Space Force marks the first time that Greg Daniels and Steve Carell have teamed up directly on a project of this scale. This is also the first time the two of them have worked together since The Office. Space Force is also the second television series Steve has been on. Since his return to television in 2019 on the Apple TV series The Morning Show.
The show wasn’t rated very highly by critics receiving usually a slightly better than 50% rating. Therefore wasn’t a resounding success for Steve after his film career. However, the series low rating could have been because Greg was not involved in that series as he is with Space Force. While it’s hard to say until the first episode’s air how well this collaboration will work based off the recent trailers. The odds are good the two have created a show that will rocket up the ratings.
In addition to Steve as General Mark R. Naird space force chief of space operations Space Force has quite an impressive lineup of other highly acclaimed comedy actors. These actors are set to play in both main and recurring roles. Some of these include John Malkovich as Dr. Adrian Mallory Space Forces chief scientist, Diana Silvers as Erin Naird, Mark’s daughter, and Lisa Kudrow as Maggie Naird, Mark’s wife to name a few.
The series cast also includes the recently deceased Fred Willard as Fred Naird, Secretary of Defense and Mark’s father. With space force as the last television appearance of Fred the series already has a claim to fame. Also of particular note is Lisa Kudrow as this will be the first comedy show in several years which she has a recurring role in.
As a result, she and Steve have something in common as both only recently returned to regular television acting. It’ll be interesting to see if Lisa plays the character of Maggie as uniquely as she did her role of Phoebe on the TV sitcom Friends.
As May 29 approaches fans of Steve and Greg eagerly await the release of Space Force. Many fans of The Office are also preparing to watch the first episode. In hopes that this new show will resurrect some of that series of hilarious spirit. It impossible to tell the answer to this question until the first episode airs. Hopefully if Spacer Force manages to live up to even half of what the trailers foreshadow it will be the equal of The Office.
