Yahoo Unveils Cast for Paul Feig’s ‘Other Space’
Yahoo has announced that production has started on “Other Space,” a new half-hour comedy series from the director of “Bridesmaids,” Paul Feig.
Created and executive produced by Feig, “Other Space” is described as a “journey in unknown space, set in the early 22nd century, when the human race has mapped most of the universe, failed to find alien life, and frankly gotten a little tired of the whole thing.”
The series will run for eight episodes on Yahoo Screen, with the first premiering sometime in the spring of 2015.
With production underway, Yahoo has also announced the show’s cast. The spaceship’s crew of “over-matched rookies, feuding siblings, burned-out veterans, and obsolete robots” will be played by a group that includes Karan Soni (“Betas”), Eugene Cordero (“House of Lies”), Milana Vayntrub (“Silicon Valley”), Conor Leslie (“Klondike”), Neil Casey (“Broad City”), and Bess Rous (“Murder in the First”).
But maybe most importantly, Yahoo’s “Other Space” will also serve as a reunion for Trace Beaulieu and Joel Hodgson from “Mystery Science Theater.”
“Other Space” will be executive produced by Feig and Owen Ellickson. Directors include Oscar winner Luke Matheny (“God of Love”), Emmy winner Rob Cohen (“Big Bang Theory”), Lucia Aniello (“Broad City”), The Nix Brothers, and Matt Sohn (“New Girl”). Feig, who wrote the pilot, will also direct the season finale.Tags: DCNF programming, Half-Hour Comedy, Other Space, Paul Feig, Yahoo Originals, Yahoo!
