Trump to get his Space Force – on Netflix

Trump’s bizarre ideas might seem a little hard to process or even be plausible to many. That doesn’t stop him from trying to implement those ideas and deliver on his promises though. And one of those bizarre ideas of his, a so-called Space Force, is becoming a reality. On TV at least, because we all know Trump’s ideas only live in the realm of fiction, right?

Netflix is teaming up with The Office creator Greg Daniels and star Steve Carell for a new workplace comedy around Trump’s ambitious idea of having a task team in space that is designed to work on a variety of tasks to keep earth safe from whatever is floating out there in space. Or at the very least, figure out what they are supposed to doing while in space because it’s clear that the idea is all a little vague, a Netflix reveals in this special teaser:

It’s unclear exactly what to expect from this upcoming show, but it’s hard to not to immediately jump to comparisons that it may just end up being a mockumentary style in a similar vein to the popular The Office. While both Daniels (who also helped create similarly themed Parks and Recreation) and Carell have long since shown that there is more to their repertoire than that comedy show, the small glimpse of humour we get to see here falls perfect in line with those comparisons. Though hopefully different enough to still allow it to be its own thing.

Netflix hasn’t revealed any other news on when they are hoping for the series to come out or even who, outside of Carell is starring in it, but hopefully it’s something we get to see more of soon. Netflix has a knack for keeping production details secret and I wouldn’t be surprised if a significant amount of work has already gone into the production of this show where it hopefully won’t be too far away before we start seeing any footage.

At least if the US is going to have a Space Force I would rather it be on Netflix than in space where they could do actual harm to the rest of us.

    Funnily enough Neil Degrasse Tyson made a fair point when he said we already have an air force, a ground force (army), and water force (navy), so space force isn’t as crazy as it sounds.

      This is actually one where I agree that I have no idea where the bashing comes from; although he does act like it is new idea and his in his speeches.

      US had a independent Space Force branch (US Space Command) for almost 2 decades, they headed the deployment of spy satellite, developed, launched and operated a little thing called GPS, deployed the extensive US military satellite communication network.

      Since there was little space related threats and the US had dominance it was integrated into the air force as US Air Force Space Command. Since threats against their space and satellites reemerged in the late 2000’s it make perfect sense to reactivate US Space Command as an independent branch and divert military spending to it because frankly US has been lagging on space front and some will say they are behind the Chinese at this moment; this should have happened under the Obama administration instead they crippled the US space capabilities into oblivion where teh US doesn’t even had independent launch capabilities anymore until SpaceX Falcon 9 became viable last year.

        Bashing him when it is being his normal idiot self 95% is fine.

        Bashing him when he actually doing something good for the sake of it just makes you look as big as a buffoon.

          Announcing something old as a new idea is not good

            Agree there, the bill is basically just reactivation of the US Space Command.

            But the CNN and democratic bashing (and Craig in this article) was that the whole idea was idiotic and there nothing they would do. Seemingly not realising that if you cripple US military space assets you take the navy, air force, all long range strike capability like drones and missiles out of action. Also that space military spending as a history of generating billions in commerce in new markets and jobs.
