So two janitors work on a Death Star like space vessel. Their friends include a couple of clones, a hot female android, and a human female worker.

What do you think life is like for janitors on a space station with evil intentions? You can find out November 13th when Geek & Sundry, the folks behind the fantastic show The Guild, debut Space Janitors, a new scif-fi satirical comedy about janitors who work on board an evil space station like the Death Star from Star Wars.
Two Canadians, Davin Lengyel and Geoff Lapaire, created the series featuring the janitors named Mike Chet (played by Pat Thorton) and Darby Richards (played by Brendan Halloran). Darby, who dates an Android, dreams of a greater role on the space station while Mike avoids making waves, collects his salary and hopes to build a moisture farm.
We haven’t seen Space Janitors but we think the concept has potential.
