Greg Daniels & Steve Carell’s ‘Space Force’ Netflix Series Begins Filming This September in Los Angeles

Mar 13, 2019

Netflix’s new comedy series ‘Space Force,’ from ‘The Office’ alums Steve Carell and Greg Daniels, will begin filming this September in Los Angeles.

The series is a workplace comedy centering around the people tasked with creating a sixth branch of the armed services.

For context, last June, Trump officially directed the Pentagon to create the so-called space force. Then, last December, he signed an order for the Pentagon to create the Space Command. He saw this as the first step in establishing a space force that would fall under the purview of the U.S. Air Force.

Carell will star in the series, will executive produce, and is the co-creator with Daniels. Daniels will also executive produce and serve as showrunner.

Last year, Carell was in the Academy Award winner ‘Vice,’ as well as ‘Welcome to Marwen’ and ‘Beautiful Boy.’ His other notable film roles include the ‘Despicable Me’ and ‘Anchorman’ franchises, and ‘The Big Short.’ Moreover, ‘Foxcatcher’ earned him an Academy Award nomination.

‘Space Force’ marks the second regular TV role that Carell has lined up in the past few months. Currently, he’s the male lead in the untitled Apple morning show drama opposite Jennifer Aniston and Reese Witherspoon. Carell is well-known for playing Michael Scott over seven seasons on ‘The Office.’

Five-time Emmy winner Daniels developed the American version of ‘The Office’ for television and served as showrunner. He also co-created ‘King of the Hill’ and ‘Parks and Recreation.’ His other writing credits include ‘Saturday Night Live’ and ‘The Simpsons.’

However, an episode count and premiere date will be announced at a later time.
