Josh Gad Takes You on a Trip of a Lifetime in a New Avenue 5 Promo

-

HBO has revealed a new Avenue 5 promo in which Josh Gad’s character, billionaire Herman Judd, talks about the space cruise ship in the Armando Iannucci (Veep) comedy series. Avenue 5 will premiere on HBO Sunday, January 19 (10:00-10:30 p.m. ET/PT) and is also coming to the HBO Max streaming service. You can watch all the previous trailers for the show by clicking here.

Avenue 5 stars Hugh Laurie as Ryan Clark, the confident and suave captain of “Avenue 5,” a space cruise ship with luxury amenities like gourmet buffets, a spa, an observation deck and yoga classes. As the series begins, Avenue 5’s eight-week journey around Saturn is underway and its systems are optimal. But when the ship suddenly encounters technical difficulties, it’s up to Ryan and his crew to calm the disgruntled passengers and find a way to deal with unexpected events onboard – though they may or may not be equipped for the task.

The cast includes Hugh Laurie (Emmy nominee for Veep, Golden Globe winner for House M.D.); Josh Gad (Murder on the Orient Express) as billionaire Herman Judd, the mercurial face and name behind Avenue 5; Zach Woods (HBO’s Silicon Valley) as head of customer relations Matt Spencer; Rebecca Front (Poldark, BAFTA winner for The Thick of It) as strong-willed passenger Karen Kelly; Suzy Nakamura (Dr. Ken) as Iris Kimura, Judd’s right hand woman; Lenora Crichlow (Being Human) as engineer Billie McEvoy; Nikki Amuka-Bird (Cinemax’s Quarry) as Rav Mulcair, head of Judd Mission Control; and Ethan Phillips (Inside Llewyn Davis) as Spike Martin, a space enthusiast and former astronaut.

Season 1 guests include Andy Buckley (The Office) as Karen’s husband Frank; Jessica St. Clair (American Housewife) and Kyle Bornheimer (Brooklyn Nine-Nine) as feuding couple Mia and Doug; Neil Casey (HBO’s Silicon Valley) as Cyrus, an Avenue 5 engineer; Matthew Beard (The Imitation Game) as Rav’s deputy Alan Lewis; Himesh Patel (Yesterday) as stand-up comedian Jordan Hatwal; Paterson Joseph (Timeless) as Judd’s business rival Harrison; and Daisy May Cooper (This Country) as Sarah, a member of the bridge crew.

The series was created by Armando Iannucci and features a teleplay by Iannucci, Simon Blackwell and Tony Roche. The executive producers include Iannucci, Kevin Loader, Blackwell, Roche, and Will Smith. Peter Fellows is the co-executive producer, and the producer is Steve Clark-Hall.
