    If anyone can figure out what the heck Space Force is supposed to be... maybe it's Steve Carell.

    Carell is reteaming with "The Office" creator Greg Daniels for a Netflix series inspired by President Trump's plan for a space force as the sixth branch of the military.

    According to the Hollywood Reporter, Netflix delivered a straight-to-series order for "Space Force", which will star Carell. It's described as a workplace comedy centered around the people tasked with creating a sixth branch of the armed services — Space Force. 

    Carell's salary for "Space Force" — including co-creator and exec producer fees — sets a new overall record for talent, likely topping the $1 million per episode paydays that the cast of CBS' The Big Bang Theory previously netted, according to the Hollywood reporter.
