It's about the people assigned to create a sixth branch of the armed services focused on space, the streaming service said.

The premise is grounded in reality: Last year, the Trump administration directed the Pentagon to form a Space Command aimed at the creation of a Space Force branch.

Carell and Daniels are the sitcom's co-creators and will serve as executive producers along with Klein.

Daniels co-created NBC's 2015-13 The Office, based on the original Ricky Gervais-Stephen Merchant U.K. mockumentary series.

The Office was well received by audiences and critics. The series received 42 Primetime Emmy Awards nominations, and managed to win five times. Many in The Office cast and crew have often expressed thei displeasure in the fact that Carell never won an Emmy for his performance in the series. However, the actor later went on to receive the Golden Globe Award for Best Actor in a Television Comedy or Musical in 2006.
