Moonbase 8 Trailer Starring Fred Armisen, John C. Reilly and Tim Heidecker


If you thought Space Force was a bit of a disappointment earlier this year (and it seems like a lot of people did), perhaps this space-themed comedy series will do the trick instead. Moonbase 8 stars Fred Armisen, Tim Heidecker and John C. Reilly as three wannabe astronauts attempting to qualify for a lunar mission by living in isolation together in NASA’s Moon Base Simulator in the Arizona desert. This looks like a comedic take on The Martian and Spaceship Earth but ultimately the main selling point is just seeing these three guys bounce off each other. Jonathan Krisel (Portlandia, Baskets, Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!) is directing and co-wrote the show with Heidecker. Moonbase 8 premieres on Showtime on Nov. 8th; check out the trailer below and let us know what you think.

    I mean… I’ll watch it if it’s free.

    Hard skip from me. Aren’t they supposed to put something funny in the trailer if it’s meant to be a comedy?
