Steve Carell channels the Beach Boys in new ‘Space Force’ trailer

Kokomo is a long way from the bureaucratic nightmare of militarizing outer space.

Today, Netflix followed up last month’s teaser with a full trailer for Steve Carell’s upcoming comedy series, Space Force. The show stars Carell as General Mark Naird, who is giving the unenviable task of running the United States’ ridiculous (and very real) new armed service branch.

As you can see in the trailer below, General Naird unenviable assignment wreaks havoc on both his professional and personal lives, which leads to him performing an impromptu cover of the Beach Boys’ 1988 hit single ‘Kokomo‘ in his office (we’ve all been there).

The show was created/written by Carell and Greg Daniels, who adapted the hit BBC series The Office into the beloved American version we all keep watching repeatedly before going to bed. In addition to Carell, the show will port an incredible comedic cast, which includes:

  • John Malkovich
  • Lisa Kudrow
  • Roy Wood Jr.
  • Jane Lynch
  • Ben Schwartz
  • Tawny Newsome
  • Jimmy O. Yang
  • Noah Emmerich

Steve Carell and John Malkovich indignantly yelling at each other is the content I’m here for.

Since it looks like this quarantine is still going to be going for a while, you’ll be happy to know that all ten episodes of Space Force are set to be released May 29 on Netflix.
