Moonbase 8 Review 2020 Tv Show Series Season Cast Crew Online
Creators: Fred Armisen, Tim Heidecker, Jonathan Krisel
Stars: John C. Reilly, Tim Heidecker, Fred Armisen
It’s been a long journey for Tim Heidecker, Fred Armisen, John C. Reilly, and Jonathan Krisel’s new comedy series Moonbase 8, which was first put into development in April 2018 before finding a home on Showtime in August. The show’s journey to television is now almost over, because today Showtime dropped the trailer for the series and also announced the premiere date.
The six-episode, half-hour series, produced by A24 and Heidecker’s company Abso Lutely, centers on Heidecker, Armisen, and Reilly as three “eager astronauts” at NASA’s Moon Base Simulator in the Arizona desert who “attempt to qualify for their first lunar mission. While working vigorously to complete their training, a series of unexpected circumstances forces the astronauts to question their own mental sanity, trust in each other, and whether or not they’re cut out for space travel.” As the trailer reveals, some of the trio’s said “attempts” to qualify for their dream moon mission include confusing the water tank with the urine-recycling machine, not knowing how to properly count down to a launch, and for Heidecker’s character, working toward his life’s mission to “help spread the Gospel of Jesus Christ out into the universe.” Moonbase 8 will make its Showtime debut on Sunday, November 8, at 11 p.m., and if the trailer is any indication, it just might prove that TV comedies set in space in 2020 can, actually, be good.
From Showtime’s official synopsis: “Set in the isolated desert of Winslow, Arizona at NASA’s Moon Base Simulator, it 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 forces the astronauts to question their own mental sanity, trust in each other and whether or not they’re cut out for space travel.”
“In a year when we have all been forced to come to terms with life in close quarters, we are happy to have landed this offbeat take on life in captivity with dreams of escaping to something grander,” said Jana Winograde, President of Entertainment, Showtime Networks Inc, when the series was picked up by Showtime back in August 2020. “While the show was produced before the pandemic, its subject matter is timely – and thanks to Fred, Tim, John and Jonathan, its humor is timeless.”
“Moonbase 8,” which will unfold as six episodes, is produced by A24 and Abso Lutely Productions. It was originally announced back in 2018.
