Lisa Kudrow is set to join Steve Carell in the upcoming Netflix comedy, Space Force, which will premiere on May 29. 

The series, co-created by The Office-fame Greg Daniels, is described as a workplace comedy revolving around the people tasked with creating a sixth branch of the armed services -- Space Force. Several sources note that the idea for the project was sparked by Donald Trump's June order to establish a space force as the sixth military branch.

Kudrow will play Maggie Naird, the wife of Carell's General Mark R Naird. She is a 'Washington Air Force wife who has sublimated parts of herself to her husband's career for two decades'. 

The show's formal description reads: "A decorated pilot with dreams of running the Air Force, four-star Gen Mark R Naird 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."

Sources claim that Carell's salary for Space Force, including co-creator and executive producer fees, sets a new overall record for talent, likely topping the $1-million-per-episode pay that the cast members of The Big Bang Theory previously netted.
