OK, we’re now seeing much more of the idyllic setting of a space cruise on the upcoming high concept HBO comedy Avenue 5.
The floating space paradise seems to be ruined by some sort of malfunction, which gives the perfect set up for those killer one-liner burns, traded back-and-forth at a mile-a-minute that are part of Iannucci’s signature style. Also, Josh Gad taking on a bit of a Michael Scott as a space tourism entrepreneur has a lot of promise as well.
Get a taste of all of that with this full trailer for Avenue 5 here, then look for the premiere on Sun. Jan. 19th on HBO.
