Disaster strikes a spacebound cruise ship in HBO’s new comedy starring Hugh Laurie and Josh Gad, Avenue 5.

Laurie portrays the captain of Avenue 5, the titular spaceship filled with uppity vacationers traveling around the solar system. That’s until technical difficulties arise, sending the crew and passengers into a frenzy riddled with swearing, clashing and emotional distress.

“This is a safe space…emotionally. Physically, we’re obviously in terrible danger.”

Avenue 5 hails from Veep creator Armando Iannucci. Simon Blackwell, Kevin Loader, Will Smith executive produce the series, which also stars Zach Woods, Nikki Amuka-Bird, Rebecca Front, Suzy Nakamura, Ethan Phillips, and Lenora Crichlow.

It arrives January 2020 on HBO.
