Showtime Sets Premiere Date for New Comedy 'Moonbase 8' Starring Fred Armisen, Tim Heidecker and John C. Reilly

Showtime has today announced the premiere date for the upcoming original comedy series Moonbase 8 starring Fred Armisen, Tim Heidecker and John C. Reilly.

The 6-episode first season will launch on Sunday, November 8 at 10/9c.

The comedy revolves around three subpar astronauts who have high hopes of being chosen to travel to the moon. Set in the isolated desert of Winslow, Arizona at NASA's Moon Base Simulator, eager astronauts Skip (Armisen), Rook (Heidecker) and Cap (Reilly) attempt to qualify for their first lunar mission. While working vigorously to complete their training, a series of unexpected circumstances forces the astronauts to question their own mental sanity, trust in each other and whether or not they're cut out for space travel.

Armisen, Heidecker and Reilly co-created the comedy with director Jonathan Krisel. They executive produce with Dave Kneebone, Eric Wareheim, Ravi Nandan and Inman Young.
