The British writer has once again partnered with HBO for Avenue 5, which stars Hugh Laurie as Ryan Clark, the captain of what looks to be an ill-fated spaceship.
Also starring in the series is Suzy Nakamura, who plays an associate owner of the spacecraft and Zach Woods as the head of customer relations, while Frozen star Josh Gad plays the ship’s billionaire owner.
The Thick of It‘s Rebecca Front also appears towards the end of the trailer as a passenger of Avenue 5.
Not much else is known about the series, but it’s been described as “set in the future, mostly in space”. Nikki Amuka-Bird, Lenora Crichlow and Himish Patel will also appear.
In 2020, Iannucci will also release his new film The Personal History of David Copperfield, which stars Dev Patel.
Avenue 5 will be released in January on HBO in the US, and Sky One and NOW TV in the UK.
