Eastbound & Down’s Danny McBride is returning to HBO to star in the new comedy series Vice Principals.

The network ordered 18 episodes of the comedy, created by McBride and Jody Hill, about a high school and the people who almost run it – the vice principals.

“Danny McBride and Jody Hill have created a smart, rowdy and unpredictable style of comedy that we can’t get enough of,” said HBO Chairman Michael Lombardo in a statement. “The idea of them setting their minds on high school was irresistible.”

McBride and Hill also created Eastbound & Down, which ended its four-season run last year.
