Steve Carell is Making a ‘Space Force’ Comedy for Netflix
Welcome to the Space Force
Steve Carell is taking aim at Donald Trump’s “Space Force” with a new series coming exclusively to Netflix. The video streaming service announced the new workplace comedy earlier today with a teaser trailer, the show will be centered around the people tasked with creating a sixth branch of the armed services called the Space Force.
Exact details on the series are still slim, but Netflix did confirm that Steve Carell, who co-created the show, will star and executive produce. Greg Daniels (The Office, King of the Hill, Parks and Recreation), is the co-creator of the series and will serve as showrunner and executive producer. Howard Klein/3Arts will also serve as executive producer.
Netflix teased the show on YouTube with the following trailer, telling viewers, “From the guys that brought you The Office. Welcome to Space Force.”
Netflix also announced that Antonio Campos’ adaptation of “The Devil All The Time” has finished casting and is going to start production. The film stars Tom Holland, Chris Evans, Mia Wasikowska, Robert Pattinson, Bill Skarsgard, Eliza Scanlen, and Gabriel Ebert. The film will be an adaptation of Donald Ray Pollock’s 2011 novel of the same name; filming is scheduled to start next month in Alabama.
The logline reads “In a place called Knockemstiff, Ohio, a forgotten backwoods of this country – a storm of faith, violence and redemption brews. Out of desperation to save his dying wife, Willard Russell turns to prayer which succumbs to sacrifice. This sets our protagonist Arvin, Willard’s son, on his path from bullied kid to a man who knows when to take action. The Devil All the Time is a finely woven “mid-western” gothic tale involving a nefarious cast of characters: a serial killer couple, a faith-testing preacher, and a corrupt local sheriff in a story that is told across two decades.”
Antonio Campos (The Sinner, Christine) is directing the film, working from a screenplay that he wrote with Paulo Campos.
