Created by Danny R. McBride and Jody Hill, who also created HBO’s Eastbound & Down, along with Ben Best, Vice Principals tells the story of North Jackson High School and the two people who almost run it, the vice principals.
When the long-time principal of a suburban high school steps down, ambitious vice principals Neal Gamby and Lee Russell both set their sights on the vacated top spot – only to see new rival Dr. Belinda Brown enter the picture. Putting their mutual disdain aside, these bitter antagonists form an unholy alliance to bring down the outsider by any means necessary.
Winner of the 2016 Audience Award at South by Southwest, McBride and Walton Goggins star as the school administrators, who are in an epic power struggle, vying for the top spot: to be school principal. Guest stars on the first season include Bill Murray as outgoing Principal Welles.
Vice Principals kicks off its nine-episode first season in Asia on Monday, July 18 at 10.30am with same day primetime encore at 10.30pm, exclusively on HBO (Astro Ch 411 / 431). New episodes debut every Monday on HBO at the same time after Ballers. The series will also be available on on Astro On The Go.
