There are very few actors who can do goofy and crazy quite like Danny McBride and Walton Goggins, and the two appear to be at their goofy craziest as a pair of warring ambitious high school teachers in HBO’s upcoming new comedy series Vice Principals,
If you were a fan of McBride’s previous series, Eastbound & Down, then you should know exactly the type of man-child comedy hijinks to expect here, as this new show also comes from McBride and his Eastbound director David Gordon Green. There was nothing much in the way of sophistication with Eastbound and as a new trailer shows, that definitely appears to be the case with Vice Principals as well, but it still looks damn funny in that vintage offbeat loser kind of way that McBride has perfected over the years. And to even sweeten the deal, they’ve even thrown in some Bill Murray goodness!
Check it out below.
Green has already shot two whole seasons of Vice Principals for HBO, so clearly the network has faith that this is going to pick up a solid following. I know I’ll be watching once/if it graces our local screens.
Vice Principals also stars Georgia King, Busy Phillips, Shea Whigham, Kimberley Herbert Gregory and Sheaunn McKinney. It is scheduled to debut in the US on July 17.
