Tim Heidecker, Fred Armisen, Jonathan Krisel, and John C. Reilly are teaming up for a new comedy series that sounds pretty fantastic. According to Deadline, A24 is financing the production of a six-episode first season of a series from all four titled Moonbase 8, which would star Heidecker, Armisen, and Reilly with Krisel attached to direct. The series would center on “three subpar astronauts living in NASA’s Moon Base Simulator in the desert with high hopes of being the next chosen to travel through to the moon.” Heidecker’s production company Abso Lutely is also behind the project, and he serves as an executive producer alongside Reilly, Armisen, Krisel, and Dave Kneebone. The show doesn’t yet have a home, but Deadline reports that A24 will look for a network after production on the first season is complete.
