Danny McBride and Walton Goggins Make Their Debut as Two of the Most Conniving “Vice Principals” Ever Tonight
10:30PM on HBO.
The series premiere of Vice Principals is tonight on HBO and, having gotten to see a sneak preview of the first two episodes, we’ll say that Danny McBride, Jody Hill, and David Gordon Green probably exceed whatever expectations you have for the series.
All of the unapologetic buffoonery from Eastbound and Down comes to the setting of a high school, but what makes the series especially exciting is that you know that it’s only going to last 18 episodes. Because of that, there’s an even juicier tension through the catastrophic shenanigans between McBride and Goggins trying to become the lone principal as their days are numbered.
Again, watch it at 10:30PM tonight.

Amazon Orders ‘Red Oaks’ to Series, More Scripts for ‘The Cosmopolitans’
(via The Hollywood Reporter)
After their latest user rated pilot season, Amazon has opted to take the Steven Soderbergh/David Gordon Green comedy pilot Red Oaks to series. This marks a streak for Soderbergh who has been gaining critical momentum for the Cinemax series he directs, The Knick.
Also, Whit Stillman’s The Cosmopolitans has received an order for an additional scripts, but whether they will go to series too has yet to be determined.
It’s clear that Amazon has built up plenty of its own momentum with Jill Soloway‘s Transparent and we’ll see if they can keep that going when Red Oaks and possibly The Cosmopolitans release their first season some time next year.

David Gordon Green and Sandra Bullock Teaming Up For “Our Brand Is Crisis”
David Gordon Green, Sandra Bullock, and Our Brand Is Crisis, a documentary about American political tactics in South America are all combining for a film adaptation of that very same documentary.
It’ll be a political dramedy and it’s anything like 2012’s No with Gael García Bernal that focused on the very same topic in Chile, then we can’t wait for this to make an awards run.

Watch New Trailer for ‘Prince Avalanche’
The entire story behind David Gordon Green‘s intriguing and promising Prince Avalanche is still a little mysterious with how a literal road comedy with Paul Rudd and Emile Hirsch will work.
Trailer for David Gordon Green’s ‘Prince Avalanche’ w/Paul Rudd & Emile Hirsch Looks Delightful
After a run at Sundance, the David Gordon Green film ’Prince Avalanche’ gets a trailer. There’s not much revealed, though that is OK as Paul Rudd and Emile Hirsch seem to get goofy in the woods while painting roads in their spare time (or maybe it’s the other way around).
Either way, it looks like it could be wonderful based off this trailer.
