Netflix has released the trailer for its upcoming comedy series “Space Force,” and it finds Steve Carell as a decorated military general desperately trying to make himself feel better by singing the Beach Boys’ “Kokomo” alone in his office.

Here is the official description from Netflix:
A decorated pilot with dreams of running the Air Force, four-star general Mark R. Naird (Steve Carell) is thrown for a loop when he finds himself tapped to lead the newly formed sixth branch of the US Armed Forces: Space Force. Skeptical but dedicated, Mark uproots his family and moves to a remote base in Colorado where he and a colorful 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.
The series hails from the people behind “The Office,” having been co-created by Carell and Greg Daniels. Howard Klein executive produces for 3Arts, with Daniels serving as showrunner.
“Space Force” premieres May 29 on Netflix.
