In addition to prepping the upcoming Ghostbusters reboot, Paul Feig is also putting the finishing touches on a new sitcom that aims to fill that Red Dwarf-sized hole in your heart. Want to see?
Dubbed Other Space, the series looks like the love child of Red Dwarf, The Office and Mystery Science Theater 3000. We mean that in the best way possible. The series focuses on a team of geeks who are shot out into space, living their weird life on a very weird spaceship. Coming from Feig, it also has a healthy dose of sharp Bridesmaids and Freaks and Geeks-style humor as well.
The cast includes Joel Hodgson and Trace Beaulieu (MST3K), Karan Soni, Eugene Cordero, Milana Vayntrub, Conor Leslie, Neil Casey and Bess Rous. Along with the (mostly) human crew, there’s also a talking robot and coffee maker, along with a lovely AI who only wants a bit more freedom.
Feig seems to be throwing a whole lot of pieces into the blender for this new Yahoo! Screen original, but if it actually sticks, it could make a great companion to the recently relaunched Community. If not, well, it should be one heck of a crazy trainwreck.
