If you can imagine it, it’s three points in an ever expanding Danny McBride-HBO universe (including Eastbound & Down and Vice Principals) that paints an always entertaining, but razor sharp satirical portrait of America.

We’ll be looking forward to when this premieres, we’re guessing sometime later next year.
Now, we can’t help but wonder if there ever will be any crossing over between McBride’s shows (even if it’s only some one-off sketch released online).
