SHOWTIME announced today that the new half-hour comedy series MOONBASE 8, starring Emmy(R) nominee Fred Armisen (Portlandia), Tim Heidecker (Tim and Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!), and Golden Globe(R) and Academy Award(R) nominee John C. Reilly (Walk Hard: The Dewey Cox Story), will premiere on Sunday, November 8 at 11PM ET/PT. The series is created, written and executive produced by Armisen, Heidecker, Reilly, and Emmy nominee Jonathan Krisel (Baskets), who also serves as series director.

Set in the isolated desert of Winslow, Arizona at NASA’s Moon Base Simulator, MOONBASE 8 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 force the astronauts to question their own mental sanity, trust in each other, and whether or not they’re cut out for space travel.

MOONBASE 8 is produced by A24 and Abso Lutely Productions. In addition to Armisen, Heidecker, Reilly, and Krisel, MOONBASE 8 is also executive produced by Dave Kneebone, Eric Wareheim, and A24’s Ravi Nandan and Inman Young.
