The official trailer for Moonbase 8, the A24-produced comedy coming to Showtime later this year, is here. The comedy series stars John C. Reilly, Fred Armisen, and Tim Heidecker as a trio of B-team astronauts living on a base out in the Arizona desert. The trio, along with series director Jonathan Krisel (Portlandia, Baskets), share series co-creator, producer, and writer credits. So, what has this mighty quartet cooked up for us?
Moonbase 8 premieres on Showtime on November 8. Watch the official trailer below.
Here is the official synopsis for Moonbase 8:
Set in the isolated desert of Winslow, Arizona at NASA’s Moon Base Simulator, Moonbase 8 follows eager astronauts Skip (Armisen), Rook (Heidecker), and their leader Cap (Reilly) as they attempt to qualify for their first lunar mission. While working vigorously to complete their training, a series of unexpected circumstances force the astronauts to question their own mental sanity, trust in each other, and whether or not they’re cut out for space travel.
Moonbase 8 is produced by A24 and Abso Lutely Productions. In addition to Armisen, Heidecker, Reilly, and Krisel, Moonbase 8 is also executive produced by Dave Kneebone, Eric Wareheim, and A24’s Ravi Nandan and Inman Young.
