Danny McBride to Star in New HBO Comedy VICE PRINCIPALS

Danny McBride, star of the hit HBO comedy series "Eastbound & Down," will return to the network in the comedy series Vice PRINCIPALS, it was announced today by Michael Lombardo, president, HBO Programming. The show is slated for 18 episodes, with the debut date and number of episodes per season to be announced as they are confirmed.

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

"HBO was the perfect creative family for 'Eastbound & Down,' and we're excited to pack up the van for the next adventure," notes McBride.

"When the idea for the new series became too crazy to keep to ourselves, we knew HBO was the perfect place to unleash it," says executive producer David Gordon Green.

Created by Danny McBride and Jody Hill, who were also the creators of "Eastbound & Down," Vice PRINCIPALS tells the story of a high school and the people who almost run it, the Vice principals.

Concluding its four-season run on HBO in 2013, "Eastbound & Down" starred McBride as irrepressible former major league pitcher Kenny Powers.

VICE PRINCIPALS is executive produced by Danny McBride, Jody Hill, David Gordon Green and Stephanie Laing, who were also executive producers of "Eastbound & Down."
