Sorry, Trump. Netflix is creating its own 'Space Force'

Well, they're keeping it very simple with just "Space Force".

For instance, there's the fact that 36,000 people are already employed by the Air Force Space Command. Reality-styled mockumentary seems likely, of course. Daniels created the long-running NBC show, whose archive is now on Netflix, with Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant as an American spinoff of their British "The Office" (2001-'03). Er, sorry, we misread that. Following on from a recent decision to guest star on a series for Apple, though, he's partnering with Office boss Greg Daniels on a new comedy set in a very different sort of workplace, developing and planning to star in Space Force.

The resulting TV series, now named Space Force, was unveiled in the form of a teaser trailer on Wednesday morning. "The goal of the new branch is "to defend satellites from attack" and 'perform other space-related tasks.' Or something".


The series will follow the men and women tasked with creating the space force and figuring out what exactly it does. We don't have a release date or any information about other stars, writers, or contributors.

A video accompanying the announcement of Space Force (you can watch it below), points to the inspiration for the series, the June 18 announcement by Trump that he has directed the Department of Defense and the Pentagon to establish a Space Force as the sixth branch of the armed forces. But it's sure to be cheaper than the actual Space Force, which could cost up to $13 billion in its first five years.
