Space Force: Steve Carell Returning to Television with The Office Creator

Carell co-created the series and will executive produce, in addition to starring.

The premise is grounded in reality: previous year, the Trump administration directed the Pentagon to form a Space Command aimed at the creation of a Space Force branch.

An episode count and premiere date will be announced at a later time.

Carell (who will star in the series), Daniels and television producer Howard Klein will serve as executive producers for "Space Force". Production won't interfere with Carell's role in Apple's untitled morning show drama alongside Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon, according to Deadline. Carrell, of course, played Dunder Mifflin Scranton Regional Manager Michael Scott for The Office's first seven seasons. He has recently starred in Welcome to Marwen, Beautiful Boy, and voiced the character Gru in the Despicable Me movies. Carell's role in The Office earned him nine Emmy nominations and one Golden Globe. He is repped by WME and Media Four.

"The Office" creator Greg Daniels is also involved with the project. He also co-created hit comedies like "King of the Hill" and "Parks and Recreation", with his other writing credits including "Saturday Night Live" and "The Simpsons". Its deliberate ties to actual United States policy suggest opportunities to openly mock existing elected officials, but we may come to find that Space Force is staged, say, 10 or 20 years in the future; again, details are terribly vague at this point.

Back in June, Trump officially directed the Pentagon to create the so-called space force.
