Netflix is launching a new comedy series into our living rooms with comedic geniuses Steve Carell, Lisa Kudrow, Fred Ward, and more.

Steve Carell has partnered with co-creator of The Office Greg Daniels for a new comedy series coming to Netflix May 29. Space Force begins with General Mark Naird receiving orders from the President to “put boots on the moon,” serving as leader of the sixth and newest branch of the United States Armed Forces. The series will also star Lisa Kudrow in the role of the first lady of the newest force created by the President.
