Fred Armisen, Tim Heidecker, and John C. Reilly in "Moonbase 8"

The first trailer for Showtime’s comedy series Moonbase 8 starring Fred Armisen, Tim Heidecker and John C. Reilly has been released.

The series follows aspiring NASA astronauts getting ready for their first lunar mission. The trailer shows, Skip (Armisen), Rook (Heidecker), and Cap’s (Reilly) having fun while preparing for their trip by recycling urine into water and trying to simulate a rocket launch.

The team joins the mission for various reasons including trying to keep a family legacy alive to preaching Jesus’ name throughout the galaxy. Ultimately, they hope to prove to NASA that they are the right men for the mission, “Let’s show NASA that we know what we’re doing,” Armisen’s Skip tells his teammates.

“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.”

Moonbase 8 will debut on November 8.
