The latest trip from the mind of Veep creator Armando Iannucci is one into space, in HBO’s Avenue 5.

It’s the tale of the maiden voyage of a space tour – think ocean liner in space – that goes a bit wrong, and how everybody reacts from then on.

Hugh Laurie plays Ryan Clark, the captain of the ship that the show centres around. Alongside him is a ship-shape supporting cast, which includes Suzy Nakamura, Josh Gad, Rebecca Front and, straight from Silicon Valley, Zach Woods.

In the featurette below, Iannucci and cast members Laurie, Woods, Gad, Nakamura, Front, Nikki Amuka-Bird and Lenora Crichlow tell us a little more as to what to expect from the series.

Avenue 5 is set to take flight later this month.
