Steve Carell to star in Netflix comedy based on Trump’s Space Force

Steve Carell to Star in Netflix Comedy Series from The Office Creator

Welcome to (Netflix's) Space Force.

No episode count has now been set for Space Force, but scripts for the comedy series are set to begin development soon.

THR says sources say Carell's salary for Space Force - including co-creator and exec producer fees - sets a new overall record for talent, likely topping the $1 million per episode paydays that the cast of CBS' The Big Bang Theory previously netted.

Space Force will undoubtedly be steeped in political satire, given its premise, but just like The Office that came before it, Space Force is described as a workplace comedy.

This marks the second regular TV role that Carell has lined up in the past few months. Carell will play an anchor alongside Reese Witherspoon and Jennifer Aniston. Carell is well-known for playing Michael Scott over seven seasons on "The Office", though he has been focusing on film for the past several years. Carell's role in The Office earned him nine Emmy nominations and one Golden Globe.

Whether he is being mercilessly lampooned by Alec Baldwin on "Saturday Night Live" or praised by rapper Kanye West, President Donald Trump has been inescapable in American pop culture in recent years. He is repped by WME and Media Four.

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