HBO has placed a straight-to-series order for a new comedy from “Eastbound & Down” creators Danny McBride and Jody Hill. Deadline.com reports that the pay-cable channel ordered 18 episodes of “Vice Principals."
The order will likely be split between multiple seasons, the story notes. The show focuses on the vice principals at a high school, with McBride set to play one of them.
“The idea of them setting their minds on high school was irresistible,” said HBO’s Michael Lombardo.
