HBO’s Avenue 5 teaser gives us the Veep space cruise

After so many bureaucratic political satires, at least Armando Iannucci has moved forward to a new idea: a bureaucratic political satire… IN THE FUTURE.

Have a look with the first trailer for Avenue 5, the HBO series that sees Iannucci’s latter-day Veep actor Hugh Laurie as captain of a luxury cruise starship run amok. Suzy Nakamura, Zach Woods, and—since he’s for some reason everywhere despite no one particularly liking him—Josh Gad co-star.

Crass insults will merge with science fiction when Avenue 5 hits HBO early next year.
