Danny McBride Brings ‘Vice Principals’ To HBO & Gillian Jacobs Joins ‘Girls’

Danny McBride Brings 'Vice Principals' To HBO & Gillian Jacobs Joins 'Girls'

It looks like HBO is eager to stay in the Danny McBride business. With “Eastbound & Down” wrapping up its fourth and final season last fall, the network is reupping with McBride and Jody Hill for “Vice Principals,” and they’ve already gone ahead and ordered eighteen episodes.

While HBO won’t yet confirm how they’ll parcel that order out (though three, six episode seasons seems like the obvious approach), they did reveal that it tells the story of a high school and the people who almost run it, the vice principals. So, Kenny Powers with kids? Sorta sounds like it, though we’d wager the concept will have different notes and textures for McBride to play with. So one to keep an eye on.

Meanwhile, “Girls” is in the midst of production for season four and as added “Community” alum Gillian Jacobs, Variety reports. But just don’t ask what her role is because no one is saying just yet.
