OK, so The Bulletin didn’t break the news that “Space Force,” a new Netflix comedy starring Steve Carell and John Malkovich, would be joining the streaming service. But we sure mentioned that some of the filming for the show, which premiered last Friday, was done on the campus of California State University, Dominguez Hills.

In late October, there were several days in which sections of the campus were either closed or access was highly limited, due to shooting of the series, which is a new Netflix comedy and stars Steve Carell and John Malkovich. And then there was the day a helicoper was parked on the lawn behind the University Theater.

Steve Carell exiting the chopper, which no one actually saw land or take off, leading the more conspiracy-oriented to speculate it never flew here, but was transported to campus.

Toro Center Drive, the road that runs between the parking lots between Dignity Health Sports Park and the west campus was where cameras were placed for several of the shots that made the trailer for “Space Force.”

Perhaps the most visible part of the campus during the show’s first season will be the west and east walkways. Considering it will probably be until at least next year that most of us will find our feet traversing these walkways, take your time with the following images, really take in our campus’ beauty.

Our campus is no stranger to film and TV shoots, with films like “The Social Network,” “Larry Crown,” and TV shows like “Beverly Hills 90210” and “CSI: Miami” also working out deals with the university to film on location.

The university generates about $20,000 for an average of six to eight projects per year, according to a 2011 story in the CSUDH Bulletin.

Whether those financial numbers have changed since then will depend on what future Bulletin stories reveal, but this much is clear: the university’s connections to Hollywood do not begin and end with it serving as a location site.

For instance, Hollywood by the Horns, launched by CSUDH Communication professor Toddy Eames, has provided a channel between students and working professionals in the media industry since 2014.

You can read all about Hollywood by the Horns, including a piece that ran last November in which we mention the new Netflix comedy, “Space Force,” starring Steve Carell and John Malkovich,” by clicking the links below. And if you think you have noticed the phrase “new Netflix comedy Spaceforce,” starring Steve Carell and John Malkovich,” a few times in this short read, you are correct. This post, while primarily about delivering the information you mostly need, is also a little experiment in search engine optimization. Thanks for participating.
