Steve Carrell's new Netflix show Space Force is worth watching for the cast alone

Think The Office, but if Michael Scott was put in charge of a plan to militarise space.

Netflix has released the first trailer for its comedy series Space Force and you'll likely notice it contains a lot of digs at US President Donald Trump's plan to militarise space.

As per Netflix:

A decorated pilot with dreams of running the Air Force, four-star general Mark R. Naird (Steve Carell) is thrown for a loop when he finds himself tapped to lead the newly formed sixth branch of the US Armed Forces: Space Force.  Sceptical but dedicated, Mark uproots his family and moves to a remote base in Colorado where he and a colourful team of scientists and “Spacemen” are tasked by the White House with getting American boots on the moon (again) in a hurry and achieving total space dominance.

Space Force is co-created by Carell and Greg Daniels (The Office), so you know what to expect.

John Malkovich, Diana Silvers, Tawny Newsome, Ben Schwartz Lisa Kudrow, Jimmy O. Yang, Noah Emmerich, Alex Sparrow and Don Lake will all star in the series.

Space Force premieres on Netflix on 29 May.
