Avenue 5 Teaser – HBO’s New Sci-Fi Comedy!

Share

Now that Game of Thrones is Gone, HBO’s putting its Veep Producers on Making Space Exploration Funny. Here’s Hoping It Works. We’ve Got the Avenue 5 Teaser Below:

I’ll be honest; after GOT ended, John Oliver seemed like the only reason to keep HBO. But as much as I love that wacky Brit, I wasn’t sure if it’d be worth keeping a subscription. Now, though, it seems even if there aren’t many great action/drama options, there’s at least another good-looking comedy on the horizon. I’m a fan of shows like Silicon Valley, and Eastbound and Down, so I know HBO knows how to do comedy. Now they’re at it again with Avenue 5. It’s set to debut in January, and aside from the aforementioned Veep connection, there’s one other big reason to watch. Hugh Laurie. That’s right, the beloved star of House plays the captain. As it should be.

Here’s the Avenue 5Teaser:

There seems like so much goodness here. I mean, first, Laurie is speaking in an American accent again, which, while I love his natural accent, gives me the House nostalgia. Second, the writing seems very much in the style of Veep, which is a formula that works very well. Third, the rest of this ensemble cast looks amazing. Rebecca Front, Josh Gad, Lenora Crichlow, Zach Woods, and Ethan Phillips, best known for being Neelix on Voyager, join Laurie to round out the cast.

So in summary, we have a spacefaring cruise liner, a malfunction, a bumbling crew, a ship full of (presumably rich and entitled) passengers, and Hugh Laurie trying to hold it all together. All in all, Avenue 5 sounds like a winning series to me. Here’s hoping!
