Carell plays four-star general Mark R Naird, whose dreams of running the Air Force are dashed when the president taps him to run the hastily-created Space Force division.
Naird is forced to rush the creation of a brand new division of the US military tasked with complete domination of all of space.
Kudrow will place Naird's wife Maggie, a Washington mainstay whose own ambition is taking her on a separate path from her husband.
Netflix has described Space Force as "a new kind of workplace comedy", where the stakes are quite literally "sky high and the ambitions even higher".
Carell has also ventured into the world of streaming TV playing a disgraced US TV anchor in the uber-expensive AppleTV+ series The Morning Show, which will be returning for a second season with Reese Witherspoon and Jennifer Aniston.
No release date for The Morning Show season two has been set since production was stopped during the worldwide shutdown.
Space Force will be launching on Netflix worldwide on May 29, 2020.
