Netflix announce Space Force - created by the guys behind The Office and starring Steve Carrell
More on Netflix
Netflix have announced what is set to be a must see new comedy series in the vein of the American version of The Office. Created by Greg Daniels and Steve Carrell, the series is based on the recent announcement by Donald Trump that a 'sixth division of the United States Armed Forces' was to be created - the Space Force.
Trump's announcement was for a new branch of the forces to be set up to "defend satellites from attack and perform other space related tasks". Sounds like there's plenty of comedy to be milked from that premise.
The new series will be coming to Netflix this year - no date has been confirmed yet, but we're pretty sure you'll be wanting to pop it into your calendar just as soon as we know when it is.
