Avengers: Endgame - Things you need to know

As reported by  Variety,  HBO has given a series order to Avenue 5, a sci-fi comedy starring Rebecca Front (Humans) and Hugh Laurie (House). The latter will play the captain of a cruise ship...in a future where space is the new tourism craze. Josh Gad, Zach Woods, Nikki Amuka, Rebecca Front, Lenora Crichlow, Suzy Nakamura, and Ethan Phillips co-star.

The series takes place 40 years in the future, where the solar system has become a hot tourism attraction. Also featured is Front as Karen Kelly, a housewife who boards the ship using her sister’s ticket and becomes the “voice of the passengers.” Judging by the sound of that, I’m guessing something goes wrong on the Avenue 5.

Created by Armando Iannucci (Veep), who also directed the pilot, Avenue 5stars Josh Gad, Nikki Amuka, Zach Woods, Suzy Nakamura, and Ethan Phillips. No production or release date has been announced.
