In what sounds like a metaphorical social satire HBO has released the first trailer for the premium cable brand is describing as a new science fiction comedy series.  Avenue 5 features Hugh Laurie as Captain Ryan Clark, head of a space-bound pleasure cruise who has to take charge when disaster strikes. His rich, snobby passengers and his working-class crew create a setup for class warfare to take place on board the eponymous ship with potentially humorous results.

The trailer introduces the crew and passengers accompanied by corny one-liners, F-bombs, and Star Trek references.

The cast also includes Josh Gad, Zach Woods, Nikki Amuka, Rebecca Front, Lenora Crichlow, Suzy Nakamura, and Ethan Phillips

Avenue 5 sets course for the stars beginning January 2020.
