HBO Orders Danny McBride's New Comedy Series 'Vice Principals'


Danny McBride


The premium cable channel has picked up 18 episodes of the comedy from McBride and his 'Eastbound and Down' co-executive producer Jody Hill.

HBO enters into a new business partnership with Danny McBride after "Eastbound & Down" ended its run on the network in November 2013. The premium cable channel has given a straight-to-series order of 18 episodes for comedy series "Vice Principals" created by McBride and Jody Hill.

"Danny McBride and Jody Hill have created a smart, rowdy and unpredictable style of comedy that we can't get enough of," says Michael Lombardo, president of HBO Programming. "The idea of them setting their minds on high school was irresistible."

The show revolves around a high school and the people who almost run it, the vice principals. McBride, Hill, David Gordon Green and Stephanie Laing, who all executive produced "Eastbound & Down", are back teaming up to exec produce the new comedy.

Premiere date and cast members for the upcoming series have not been announced yet.
