After teaming up for the raunchy comedy series Eastbound & Down on HBO, director David Gordon Green and star Danny McBride return to the network this summer with Vice Principals. This time the show follows Danny McBride as a vice princpial competing with Walton Goggins (The Hateful Eight) for the recently vacated position as principal at Lincoln High School, and these two childish grown-ups aren’t beyond sabotaging each other in inappropriate ways.
A new Vice Principals trailer has arrived, and HBO is finally using the presence of Bill Murray in the pilot as the retiring principal of Lincoln High School. In the new glimpse for the show, Murray has some advice for McBride and Goggins before they start competing for his job. Watch below. Read More »

But Walton Goggins, the vice principal of curriculum, isn’t going to let that job go without a fight.
