The three stars created, wrote and executive produced the series alongside Jonathan Krisel (who directs each episode).

Set in the isolated desert of Winslow, Arizona at UsefulNotes/{{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 forces the astronauts to question their own mental sanity, trust in each other and whether or not they're cut out for space travel.
