Netflix has released the first teaser trailer for Space Force, its upcoming workplace comedy series starring Steve Carell.
The show follows the story of four-star General Mark R. Naird as he begrudgingly teams up with an eccentric scientist to get the U.S. Military’s newest agency ready for liftoff.
The series will be the reunion of Steve Carell and Greg Daniels, who previously worked together on The Office. The two co-created Space Force and will act as executive producers, with Daniels likewise stepping into the role of showrunner.
BAFTA-nominated filmmaker Paul King (Paddington, Paddington 2) directed the first two episodes of the new series, including the pilot.

Space Force stars Golden Globe winner Steve Carell, best known for his starring role as Michael Scott in the other Greg Daniels production, a little known show called The Office. He will play General Mark R. Naird, an air force pilot who ends up in command of the new military branch.
Joining him as his family members are Lisa Kudrow of Friends fame, as his wife Maggie, and Diana Silvers (Booksmart, Ma) as their daughter Erin Naird.
John Malkovich (Bird Box) will play the eccentric scientist Dr. Adrian Mallory, the Head Science Advisor at the Space Force who is hoping to prevent space from becoming the next great international battlefield. Ben Schwartz (Parks and Recreation) plays F. Tony Scarapiducci, a self-centered media consultant whose Machiavellian goals only sometimes line up with those of Mark or Space Force.
Jimmy O. Yang (Crazy Rich Asians, Silicon Valley) plays Dr. Chan Kaifang, Doctor Mallory’s right hand man, with Tawny Newsome as Angela Ali, an ambitious and competitive helicopter pilot, and Alex Sparrow as Bobby Telatovich, a charming observer from the Russian Government.
The 10-episode first season of Space Force premieres on Netflix on May 29.
