From The Hollywood Reporter:
“Veep creator Armando Iannucci is returning to HBO.
The pay cabler has ordered a pilot for a space comedy from the acclaimed writer, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed.
Avenue 5 (working title) is described as a comedy set in the future, mostly in space. In addition to a pilot, HBO has also ordered backup scripts for the show.
The series marks Iannucci’s first TV endeavor since he left Veep at the end of season four. Iannucci exited the Julia Louis-Dreyfus political comedy due to the long commute between his home in London and the show’s Los Angeles-based production. (The first few seasons were filmed in Maryland.)
The pilot for Avenue 5 will shoot in London next year.”
Give Paul Thomas Anderson an Oscar.
I’ve actually been waiting for some sort of space comedy. Has there been any good ones since Futurama?
I think FOX is trying with “The Orville” but I can’t think of any besides that.
Netflix is making Lost in Space staring Emmy nominee Molly Parker so hopefully that’s good.
