Eastbound & Down was one of HBO’s prime comedy hits within the psat couple of years. Now, the writers of Eastbound, Danny McBride and Jody Hill, are teaming up once again to bring forth a new HBO comedy called Vice Principals.
The show is getting 18 episodes in its premiere season and will star McBride along with Walton Goggins (Justified, The Shield) and HBO alum, Shea Whigham (Boardwalk Empire, Agent Carter). The show focuses on a high school and the two guys that believe they run the place who team up with a dirty politician.
The show has an amazing trio here and with McBride and Hill writing, it should very easily find itself being a hit, especially with people that loved Eastbound. I, personally, can’t wait for this to get onto HBO because I think it will be hilarious and feel very similar to Eastbound in setting.
