      Netflix Beats Trump's Space Force Into Space


          Space Force: Trump Wants A

          'space-based missile defense layer'

          Steve Carell & Netflix Beat Him To It

          President Donald Trump’s proposed space force may debut on Netflix before it actually makes it into space.

          As he unveiled a revamped missile defense plan at the Pentagon today, President Donald Trump said that the United States is prepared to make use of space as a potential battleground. "My upcoming budget will invest in a space-based missile defense layer," Trump announced, and it is "ultimately going to be a very, very big part of our defense – and, obviously, of our offense."

          According to Variety, Carell has re-teamed with his former "The Office" producer Greg Daniels for the new series, which was teased in a short "coming soon" video from Netflix released Wednesday.

          The promo announced: "The goal of the new branch is 'to defend satellites from attack' and 'perform other space-related tasks. ...Or something."

          It added: "This is the story of the men and women who have to figure it out."

          Carell, it turns out, has some recent experience with such material...
