Comedy is heading to the cosmos on Other Space, which blasts off this week with eight episodes on Yahoo. A long-gestating project of creator Paul Feig (Bridesmaids, Freaks and Geeks), the quirky galactic sitcom follows a ragtag crew of space explorers in 2105 whose ship is drawn into a strange, alternate universe. Food shortages, alien attacks and overwhelming incompetence ensue.
Q: Other Space has an offbeat sense of humor, despite putting its characters in frequently grim situations. How did you decide on the tone of the show?
