Netflix Reveals Lisa Kudrow Will Star in ‘Space Force’ with Steve Carell (and Gives Us First-Look Photos & a Premiere Date)

It’s official: Lisa Kudrow is teaming up with Steve Carell for Netflix’s all-new comedy series Space Force, which just got a premiere date and first-look photos.

The streaming service just announced that Space Force will premiere on Friday, May 29, so mark your calendars. The show will star Carell and Kudrow playing a husband and wife duo, and by the looks of these new photos, they’re totally in their element.

Space Force tells the story of Mark R. Naird (Carell), a decorated Air Force pilot who is tasked with leading the U.S. Armed Forces’ newest branch: Space Force. Though skeptical, he uproots his family and moves to Colorado. The series follows Naird as he takes control of the base and, well, you get the idea.

In addition to Carell and Kudrow, the series also stars John Malkovich (Dr. Adrian Mallory), Diana Silvers (Erin Naird), Tawny Newsome (Angela Ali), Ben Schwartz (F. Tony Scarapiducci), Jimmy O. Yang (Dr. Chan Kaifang), Noah Emmerich (Kick Grabaston), Alex Sparrow (Yuri “Bobby” Telatovich) and Don Lake (Brad Gregory).

Space Force was created by Carell and Greg Daniels (showrunner of The Office), so we’re expecting a solid mix of modern comedy and “That’s what she said” jokes.

Phoebe Buffay meets Michael Scott? We can get behind this.
