If you love “The Office” and Michael Scott, we have good news for you. Steve Carell is set to star in a new workplace comedy series on Netflix based on President Donald Trump’s proposed Space Force.

Netflix announced the new series on its social media channels Wednesday afternoon. It will be about the people who have been tasked with creating the Space Force.

The teaser video posted by Netflix says, “On June 18, 2018 the federal government announced the creation of the 6th major division of the United States Armed Forces. The goal of the new branch is ‘to defend satellites from attack’ and ‘perform other space-related tasks’ or something. This is the story of the men and women who have to figure it out.”

Carell, who will star in the show, co-created it with Greg Daniels, the man who developed the American version of “The Office.” Carell played lead character Michael Scott in the mockumentary for several seasons.

The teaser did not give an exact release date for the series but said it is coming soon to Netflix.
