The series is inspired by Trump's idea for a space force to serve as the sixth branch of the military.



Sources say 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. With The Office ranking as one of Netflix's most-watched acquired series — sources note that it often collects more viewers than some of its originals — the streamer stepped up after hearing Carell was ready to return to series regular television and aggressively pursued the series. The show was not shopped elsewhere.
