Netflix has released a new trailer for its upcoming comedy SPACE FORCE.

In the new series, “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 was co-created by Carell and his former THE OFFICE boss Greg Daniels. The series also stars John Malkovich, Diana Silvers, Tawny Newsome, Ben Schwartz, Lisa Kudrow, Jimmy O. Yang, Noah Emmerich, Alex Sparrow, and Don Lake.

Funko has consistently released excellent (and often delightfully niche) THE OFFICE Pop figures from the show’s history—whether it was Jim as Threat Level Midnight’s Goldenface, Kevin with his famous chili (pre-spill), or Dwight as the Hay King—and more are on their way!

At the recent Toy Fair New York, Funko revealed eight new figures and four keychains.

Comments Off on THE OFFICE Releases Full THREAT LEVEL MIDNIGHT Film

THREAT LEVEL MIDNIGHT The Office

More than six years after THE OFFICE went off the air, the show’s official YouTube account released a surprise video: the full version of Michael Scott’s (Steve Carell) film epic THREAT LEVEL MIDNIGHT.

The film, which was first introduced into THE OFFICE world when the Dunder-Mifflin employees found Michael’s script, but more fully realized in season 7 (ahead of Carell’s exit from the show), follows secret agent Michael Scarn (played by Michael, naturally), who is recruited by the President of the United States of America (played by Craig Robinson’s Darryl) to try and stop uber-villain Goldenface (played by John Krasinski’s Jim). It is…even crazier than it sounds.

Fox is staying in business with BONES boss Hart Hanson: the network has picked up 13 episodes of BACKSTROM, a procedural (led by former THE OFFICE star Rainn Wilson) based on a Swedish book series of the same name. The project had been in the works at CBS last season, but the network had opted against moving forward with the show.

Take a look at what those involved with BACKSTROM’s second chance at life have to say about the matter…

Top 13 TV Episodes of 2013

top-13-tv-episodes-of-2013-featured

It’s no secret I watch a lot of TV. Heck, I watch more TV than I should probably ever admit. But there is a lot, lot, lot of good stuff on television — and now, increasingly, through other mediums like Netflix, Amazon, etc. It’s a good time to love quality programming.

As we approach the end of the year, I wanted to note a few of the shows that stood out to me over the past 12 months. First up, we have the top episodes. For me, they were the most enjoyable as a television fan. You may agree with some, all, or none. You may be like me and have your top episodes change 20 times. (Only a slight exaggeration, but I easily could have singled out 25 great episodes this season. Or 50.)

So, these are the 13 hours of television that stuck out to me the most this past year, in alphabetical order of series…

Comments Off on THE OFFICE: Jenna Fischer, Kate Flannery, and Jake Lacy Preview the Impact of the Documentary

Since THE OFFICE’s first season, the events of the series had been portrayed as being shot as part of a documentary. And while the show’s final season has peeled back the curtain a little bit on that (most notably with introducing some of the crew in the midst of a Jim-Pam fight), tonight’s brand new episode takes things a step further: promos for the documentary start airing!

At the show’s wrap carpet, I spoke with series stars Jenna Fischer (Pam), Kate Flannery (Meredith), and Jake Lacy (Pete) about the impact of the documentary finally being released…
