Avenue 5 might only be a pilot at the premium cable network, but Hugh Laurie and Armando Iannucci only sounds like a winning combination. Put the setting of space on top of that and it seems like a delicious icing on an already gorgeous cake.
We’re imagining a House M.D.-ish Hugh Laurie perhaps in some sort of position of power at NASA or fictional equivalent. Even if we’re far off the mark, this is definitely one project to keep track of.
Also, this would probably be a great opportunity for Iannucci to rightfully send up Trump’s idiotic waste of the budge known as the “Space Force”.
