Vice Principals is a new comedy from the Eastbound and Down team that debuts on HBO this July. It stars Danny McBride and Walton Goggins as feuding high school vice principals. It stars Kenny Powers and Boyd Crowder as feuding high school vice principals. If the show hadn’t already won your heart with those few sentences alone (if, say, you wanted to wait for some sort of visual confirmation that the show looks promising, possibly a teaser-type video released by HBO that features Danny McBride getting meat thrown at his head and Walton Goggins wearing a series of remarkable bow ties), I have excellent news for you: the trailer is posted above and it is delightful.
B-b-but wait, there’s even more. Here’s a brief description of the series from the website for SXSW, where the first episode will be premiering.
Created by Danny McBride and Jody Hill, who also created EASTBOUND & DOWN comes VICE PRINCIPALS, a dark comedy series that tells the story of a high school and the two people who almost run it, the vice principals. McBride and Walton Goggins star as the V.P.s who are an in epic power struggle, vying for the top spot: to be school principal. The half-hour series is slated for 18 episodes over two seasons.
Yes. Yes, this will do nicely.
