Showtime has launched the trailer for its comedy sequence Moonbase 8. Starring Fred Armisen, Tim Heidecker and John C. Reilly, Moonbase 8 follows aspiring NASA astronauts making ready to qualify for his or her first lunar mission.
“Let’s show NASA that we know what we’re doing,” Armisen’s Skip tells his teammates.
The trailer, which dropped Tuesday, follows Skip, Rook (Heidecker) and Cap’s (Reilly) shenanigans on the titular base in Arizona. From recycling urine into water to unsuccessfully simulating a rocket launch, the clip options the lead characters working in direction of their aspirations and targets of reaching the moon.
Though becoming a member of the mission for a spread of causes – from extending a household legacy to selling the phrase of Jesus Christ all through the galaxy, the Moonbase Eight staff comes collectively to show to NASA that they don’t seem to be in over their heads within the hopes of reaching the astronomical physique.
“That’s why I love you guys. We’re dedicated to a mission that’s beyond our ability but we’re going to try anyway,” Reilly’s Cap tells his teammates. “We are going to the moon.”
Showtime, along with releasing the sequence trailer, set the premiere date for the comedy. Moonbase 8 will debut on Showtime Nov. Eight at 11 p.m.
