Skeptical but dedicated, Mark uproots his family and moves to a remote base in Colorado where he and a colourful team of scientists and "Spacemen" are tasked by the White House with getting American boots on the moon (again) in a hurry and achieving total space dominance.

Kudrow plays Nairn's wife, Maggie. 

From co-creators Carell and Greg Daniels (The Office), Netflix describes Space Force as "a new kind of workplace comedy, where the stakes are sky high and the ambitions even higher". 

John Malkovich, Diana Silvers, Tawny Newsome, Ben Schwartz also star, alongside Jimmy O. Yang, Noah Emmerich, Alex Sparrow and Don Lake.
