According to TV Line, VEEP creator Armando Iannucci will launch his new HBO comedy on Sunday, January 19th at 10 PM EST. HBO describes the series as a “space tourism comedy set 40 years in the future when the solar system is everyone’s oyster”. Award winning actor Hugh Laurie stars as Avenue 5’s captain, Ryan Clark. Accompanying Laurie on this voyage will be Frozen’s Josh Gad as Herman Judd the ship’s owner and space tourism enthusiast.
Silicon Valley alum Zach Woods will be trading in one start-up company for another. Woods established himself as quirky neurotic executive on Silicon Valley, and should bring that same energy as Avenue 5’s Head of Customer Relations – Matt Spencer. English actress Lenora Crichlow, known for her portrayal as Annie Sawyer in the U.K. supernatural drama Being Human, serves as second engineer Billie McEvoy. Rounding out the crew is comedian Suzy Nakamura who will portray Herman Judd’s assistant Iris Kimura.
