Carell and Greg Daniels, creator of NBC's version of The Office, co-created the workplace comedy Space Force, which has received a straight-to-series order. Their comedy is inspired by President Trump's proposal last June for a space force as the sixth branch of the military. The news comes three months after Carell boarded Apple's morning news show drama series. The Hollywood Reporter reports, based on sources, that "Carell's salary for Space Force — including co-creator and exec producer fees — sets a new overall record for talent, likely topping the $1 million per episode paydays that the cast of CBS' The Big Bang Theory previously netted. With The Office ranking as one of Netflix's most-watched acquired series — sources note that it often collects more viewers than some of its originals — the streamer stepped up after hearing Carell was ready to return to series-regular television and aggressively pursued the series." Space Force wasn't shopped elsewhere.
One month after it was reported that SMILF star Samara Weaving raised concerns about misconduct on the Showtime show's set, Shaw discussed the allegations in a Today interview this morning. "This is my first time doing this job and we moved fast, and I was learning on the go and I’m just really grateful that I can take these lessons of being a more aware and in tune showrunner moving forward,” Shaw told Hoda Kotb and Jenna Bush Hager. “And I will say I am really proud of a lot of the work we did, you know? We had approximately 50% female crew in Boston. We had almost all women directors…(including) Kerry Washington.” Co-star Rosie O'Donnell, whom Weaving complained to, was also interviewed. “It’s a beautiful set, I have to say," O'Donnell said. "There is a family feel on the set and the great thing about Frankie is she addressed the stuff and the network did, and everybody is okay and here we go.”
